Here are the first names of the artists on the poster for the 2022 edition of the Au Pont du Rock festival. Names but also the outlines of a “new project, redesigned” favoring the search for balance over “always more”, drawn in an editorial that we deliver to you below. The box office opens today with discounted packages, but in limited quantities. So you know what you have to do…
” ” We don’t give up ” ! It is our state of mind. After a 2021 edition that will remain etched in our memories with memorable concerts that made us smile and a photo exhibition of outdoor and indoor artists retracing our long history, the oldest associative and independent rock festival of the summer in Bretagne will electrify Malestroit over 3 days this year on August 5, 6 and 7. Three days of rock, punk, pop, hip-hop, rap, electro, soul music and more, three days of celebration where generations mingle, three electric days surfing with your head in the clouds, three days of sharing on a redesigned site that we want to be more welcoming, more user-friendly and on a human scale. It’s a new project, redesigned, where the always more gives way to the search for a global and artistic balance, in the spirit of rock and the eclecticism that has characterized us since 1989. Some headliners still accessible that we like to confirmed groups, favourites, discoveries or young groups in the making, the AU PONT DU ROCK festival does not let go of anything out of passion and love of music!!! ”
Association Aux Arts etc… organizer of the Au Pont du Rock festival
The first 13 groups or artists
Aux Arts etc… presents its programming:
“Because the festival would not be what it is without guitar ROCK bands, we are happy to welcome the psychedelic garage rock of THE LIMINANAS with no less than 7 musicians devoted body and soul to the most primal rock, mixed with the most sonic psychedelic vibrations and flights; the more pop, elegant and groovy one from the Belgians of BALTHAZAR which confirm with sand their latest album their mastery and sense of melody; the raw rock with the punk energy of CASHMERE who continue to welcome an increasing number of fans to their concerts, a sign that French rock is definitely not dead and the American soul man from Atlanta CURTIS HARDING with a golden voice and skilfully orchestrated songs that are layered with nervous rhythm’n blues bordering on garage rock. If Words Were Flowers his 3rd opus is loaded with love and electricity. This is THE favorite of the festival!
EDDY DE PRETTO will also be there after his very remarkable appearance at the festival in 2019. We will have the pleasure of welcoming this artist apart at the crossroads of styles, song with strong lyrics, hip-hop, modern urban soul… He will come to present his new album A all the bastards with an impressive new live show accompanied by excellent musicians.
Also a musical UFO, the music ofODEZENNE is not easily defined but it is powerful and in perpetual evolution. The group takes us into a poetic universe of rap with synths galore. Their last complete concert, filmed at the Zénith de Paris, takes us into the clouds! Clouds full of electricity with hip-hop, rap, punk des SVINKELS who will return to the festival for their last concert in Brittany before a final separation! This means that they will be expected AU PONT DU ROCK in Malestroit by all their fans. After 25 years of career, our national Beastie Boys are playing in the big leagues! Younger, the rap with pop colors of LUJIPEKA from the Columbine collective in Rennes, and author of a very good first album Russian mountains will come to set fire to the lawn just like the next generation of French rap in the person of LUV REVAL. Fluid lyrics, melodious choruses, atmospheric atmospheres, electric flows, dark melancholy, this young rapper has everything to become a great one!
Finally, the festival does not forget the electro scene, whether it tends towards Dub, Bass music with PANDA DUB essential artist of the French independent & alternative landscape, who will keep the promises of a new musical journey that he will come to magnify on stage; hardtek with BILLX which will offer the Pont du Rock its gentle strolls at 190 bpm. He will thus make us savor the delicate hardtek basses, browse the psytrance lullabies and the Frenchcore remixes; no longer turn to French song with the essentials GOOD HEARER who will liven up the Malestroyen dance-floor until the end of the night; or full of talent with MEZERG a showman, pianist, incredible adventurer, YouTuber, and creator of the crazy concept, the “Boom Boom piano” who has decided to revolutionize the use of his instrument, the theremin (an old electronic instrument born in 1920) and steals success successful around the world! ”
