Atypical trio formed in 2018 and composed of a tenor saxophone, a saxophone baritone and a drummer, it works both acoustically and with sound. The original compositions, loaded with catchy melodies, frenetic rhythms and cosmic solos combine jungle, jazz, techno, electro, fanfare: the DRUM’n’SAX style was born.

In a festive and relaxed atmosphere, clarinet and trombone/tuba immerse you in the musical universe of the Renaissance under the direction of their teachers Béatrice Auger and Marc Pinson.
7:45 p.m. – Courtyard Garden
The irresistible folk impulse of a twelve string, the clarity of emotions, the fervor of a voice of youthful bluesman, the clarity of intentions. His songs seem to run in a village street, from bistro to bistro, in a night with guitars, on a platform while waiting for the train…
ATOMIC BRASS BAND
Marching Band Funk Jazz
8 p.m. – Rotunda Foch
10:30 p.m. – Fishing port
Inspired by New Orleans Marching Music culture, Atomic Brass Band perpetuates the heritage of the tradition of the parades of mythical New Orleans.

9 p.m. – Courtyard Garden
JEKYLL WOOD composes an apparently hybrid music, in which we find a robot rock dear to Queens of the Stone Age and the warmth of a progressive groove.
As if the brilliant musician had decided not to choose between vintage rock, pop classy, pure blues and a more experimental approach.
9 p.m. – La Chaume Festival Hall
10:45 p.m. – Courtyard Garden
La Loma is inspired by the mystical folklore of the Andes, Afro-Caribbean rhythms and psychedelic atmospheres to deliver an over-vitamined and positive tropical cocktail!
9 p.m. – Arctic Vendée Village
Iddle Fingers is the trio that diverts and returns from vintage to modern with a overflowing energy. Complete artists who do not hesitate to play with codes to deliver their uninhibited vision of the titles that you will find yourself humming (again) after their show.
