Groundswell – new surf music festival in France

Okay, it might be a tiny bit early to plan the festival season yet, but right before the weekend we thought it’s okay to daydream a bit… Please let us introduce Groundswell, a new music festival combining sun, surf, international music acts and eco credibility in France.

To be held on September 17th, Groundswell is being run by Jersey-based events company Allez-oop and will take place amongst the world class waves and stunning beaches of the southern Landes region, Europe’s surf capital, situated just half an hour north of Biarritz in the South West of France.

Groundswell is expecting a crowd of 15,000 fun-loving, ocean-mad revelers, there to enjoy their own endless summer by checking out the international acts at the Groundswell Main Stage, Groundswell Dance Arena and Grassroots Stage, and by experiencing other attractions including the Eco Village, Action Sports Expo and Global Food Village.

The following weekend also sees the ASP World Tour hit Hossegor, so you can easily make a holiday of it and stay a bit longer to get your full range of action in

Tickets start at €45, more info on
