Les Francophonies en Limousin is a multidisciplinary festival lasting ten days that celebrates all expressions of the French-speaking world and particularly Africa. The event takes place each year in late September/early October in Limousin, and mainly in Limoges.
The rich and varied line-up favours a blend of genres, with dance shows, reggae, jazz or traditional music concerts, theatre, readings and meetings with authors.
The festival opens on the first day with a big popular and artistic celebration with street performances, concerts, games for young people and catering stands. A celebration for all, children and grown-ups alike, which gives the city of Limoges a lively and friendly atmosphere. Since its creation in 1984, the festival has welcomed hundreds of artists, authors, musicians and directors, such as Sony Labou Tansi (Republic of Congo), Kateb Yacine (Algeria), Robert Lepage (Canada-Quebec), Tatiana Rojo (Ivory Coast) and many more.
