Meaning “night party” in Breton, the Fest Noz is a festive gathering based on the collective practice of traditional Breton dances, accompanied by singing or instrumental music. About a thousand Fest Noz take place every year with participants varying from a hundred to several thousand people, thousands of musicians and singers and tens of thousands of regular dancers. Beyond the practice of the dance, the Fest Noz is characterized by an intense camaraderie among the singers, musicians and dancers, significant social and intergenerational diversity, and openness to others… Now recognized throughout the world, this event was registered a few years ago as part of UNESCO’s intangible heritage.
Que la fête commence !
