Route du Rock 2014: An old Fort, beaches, and Pegase

la_plage_rdrSo, picture this. France. Bretagne. Saint Malo. The coast. Fort de Saint-Père, a medieval fortification set up under the reign of Louis the 16th – so basically, rather old. Now, in this setup, twice a year La Route du Rock, one of France’s most prestigious festivals is taking place. Twice, because they can. The summer edition is going down August 13-16th. Among the headliners are Jamie xx, Portishead, Moderat, Anna Calvi, Mac DeMarco and many more.

However, the one Team Poule is the absolute most excited about is the French outfit Pegase. Their smooth dream pop is among the finest you will ever find. And not only does Route Du Rock take place in a fort, it also has quite an amazing stage set up right by the beach – I mean, does it get any better than that? Does not. Pegase will play La Plage – no shit, a stage called La Plage – on Saturday afternoon, 4pm. Attached below is their magnificently smooth track Sanny’s Baby – a song the team recently provided to the soundtrack of the latest Louis Vuitton travel book, hey-yo!

And for those who still have energy left on Sunday, just dip in the sea OR join the traditional football tournament Sport Is Not Dead that will be played out right on the beach. What better way to spend a weekend in the middle of August? Pack your tent and loved one – and snag a last ticket here.
