Des Bands from around the world

This festival is above all an event which highlights folk and musical cultures of the world. In a way, it can also remind us of Mazamet’s links with the international scene, especially since the great industrial period of the valley and of the trading posts.

2 days of well organised celebrations

For 2 days, Mazamet is in tune and lives to the rhythm of the bands: wanderings of music groups on the market, parades of majorettes, parades of flag-throwers ... Not to mention the bodegas and the famous election of “Miss Fanfares” . Glitter, colours, good humour and elegance are generally the watchwords of this festival.

The fever of this beautiful Saturday evening

The final stage of this event takes place on Saturday evening at Lac des Montagnès. To add to the magic of the place and the festival, it was the same evening that the annual fireworks linked to French ‘Bastille Day’ celebrations. In this memorable evening, the musical groups play before and after the fireworks, for a most sumptuous result.
