Every year in early July, the Calvi on the Rocks festival comes to Calvi's town centre, beaches and citadel for six days of culture and celebration. An exceptional setting for a hip, laid-back festival featuring electronic music, artistic performances and Corsican traditions.
Electro afternoons with DJs are held every day on Calvi's beaches: L'Octopussy, Les Dunes, L'In Casa and Le Bout du Monde. For the festival, the Villa Schweppes sets up its summer residence on a beach that can only be reached by shuttle or on foot. The programme of activities alternates between siestas, mojitos, and enjoying iced tea and Corsican specialities.
In the evening, festival-goers can pay to attend the concerts at the Théâtre de Verdure outdoor venue or relax in the chill-out room at the harbour. The line-up is cutting-edge and provides a chance to discover or rediscover famous DJs like Laurent Garnier, Brodinski or Sébastien Tellier.
