Le Puy-en-Velay

The Nuits Basaltiques festival takes place in Puy-en-Velay each year in July with 4 evenings dedicated to traditional music and dances from Auvergne and other regions, an area which is the heart of the action of the Departmental Music Center and Traditional Dances of Haute-Loire (CDDMT 43) for over 20 years.

Basaltic Nights

traditional music and dance

A real summer highlight of the town of Puy-en-Velay, the Basaltic Nights festival every year brings together lovers of traditional music and dances. Concerts and workshops punctuate this Velay event in July!

Programming this music as part of a festival, in quality reception conditions in the heart of the Pierre Cardinal Center gives a unique influence and dimension to this major summer event in Puy-en-Velay. If this is about music and dance, it is also about the cultural heritage of our territories.

Thus revalued, brought up to date thanks to today's artists who take it and return it to the public in a contemporary form, traditional music and dances find their place in the landscape of culture and music current.
