Free Festivals

Énora Doublé - 24 May 2024

Festivals aim to be more inclusive and provide their audience with opportunities to have access to culture. As a result, it is rather common to find festivals with free admission for children, discounts for teenagers, students, or those under the age of 25, as well as for the disabled, seniors, and unemployed. Some festivals have gone even further, offering free-entry events or being fully free and open to everybody.
