Description

Flush with star musicians and in one of the most beautiful seaside cities in Europe, it hasn't been hard for Marseille to host the Fiesta des Suds world music festival every autumn. There's nothing better than sitting in a dockyard near the sea listening to everything from reggae to a forty-piece band strum funeral ballads. No surprise upwards of 50,000 flood the city to attend. The festival has been going on since 1992, and has featured musicians from the Albania to Zimbabwe everything in between in the show line-up. Fiesta des Suds stretches beyond music by also including art exhibitions, dance programs, children's programs, and French culinary delights. The festival concludes with a fantastic fireworks display on the last night.
