After thrilling many a festival-goer last summer, the Motocultor festival announces its return in 2024 with a new, 15th edition not to be missed on Thursday August 15, Friday August 16, Saturday August 17 and Sunday August 18 in Carhaix, Brittany. On the program? Architects, Kvelertak, Clutch, Jinjer, The Halo Effect, Born of Osiris, as well as Millencolin, Red Fang, Opeth, Meshuggah, Magma, Baroness, Kalandra, Myrkur, Kronos, Exodus and Igorrr... Discover the full program for this new edition, and the concert times!

Considered by many to be Hellfest's little brother, Motocultor Festival Open Air was first held in Brittany in 2007. Since then, the metal festival has come a long way. Based in Saint-Nolff, not far from Vannes in Brittany, the Motocultor Festival has featured a host of national and international artists since its inception, including Buzzcocks, Behemoth, Exodus, Eluveitie, Trivium, Sick of it all, Ultra Vomit, Opeth, Ministry and Soulfly.

After two cancelled editions in 2020 and 2021 due to the health crisis, the Motocultor Festival made its comeback in 2022 for 4 days, still in Saint-Nolff. A historic site that the festival has decided to leave. In the summer of 2023, the Motocultor Festival moved to a new playground in Carhaix ( where the Vieilles Charrues festival already takes place). The aim? To offer festival-goers a great line-up over four days.

In 2024, for its new and 15th edition, the Motocultor Festival returns to Carhaix for four new days dedicated to extreme music on Thursday 15th, Friday 16th, Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th August 2024.

What about the line-up? The festival has unveiled the names of the 2024 edition of Motocultor. Get ready for live performances by Architects, Kvelertak, Clutch, After the Burial, Liturgy, Jinjer, The Halo Effect, Born of Osiris , Millencolin, Red Fang, Opeth, Meshuggah, Magma, Kalandra, Myrkur, Kronos, Baroness, Exodus and Igorrr. Also announced are Sonata Arctica, Thurston Moore and Beast in Black. Tickets are now available!

This 15th edition of the Motocultor Festival is sure to delight your ears. In summer 2023, the festival welcomed such prestigious bands as Abbath, Avatar, Katatonia, The Exploited, Carcass, Carpenter Brut, Zeal & Ardor, Biohazard, Deicide, Amenra, Dog Eat Dog, Epica, Wardruna, Alestorm, Kadavar, Rise Of The Northstar and Converge.

Are you looking forward to the 2024 Motocultor Festival in Carhaix, Finistère? Join us from August 15 to 18, 2024, to thrill to the sounds of 109 bands!
