GILLES PETERSON’S WORLDWIDE FESTIVAL

4 days of music and sunshine heaven in the South of France.

Gilles Peterson has a habit of unearthing upcoming talent on his BBC Radio 1 show, so he decided to share his amazing taste in music with the people who also have amazing taste in music by putting on a 4 day festival in the South of France. And with such heavyweight producers and artists like Jamie XX, Mount Kimbie, Flying Lotus, Joy Orbison, Benji B, Kode9 v SpaceApe, David Rodigan, Ghost Poet, Boiler Room, Young Turks and many many more tipping the bill, it is set to be a scorcher of a festival.

This will be the 6th installment of the festival, which takes place in the sleepy seaside resort of Sète in the South of France from July 6th-10th July.

There is a 15,000 capacity spread out across four venues:

CLUBBING/ LIVE EXPERIENCE – St Christ – Phare Du Mole – Setesituated in the heart of Sete’s Harbour, will be transformed into a festival complex as WF gears into the clubbing & live experience mode. This vast open air space will play host to great live bands but also to the cream of today’s club scene.

BEACH STAGE – Promenade Du Lido – Triangle De VilleroyThe WF Beach stage oozes relaxation surrounded by an endless white sandy beach and the Med. Come the last day of every WF and we are taking over the beach for a 18 hour beach party extravaganza!!. It also have several afternoon sessions between 10am and 6pm!

LIVE STAGE – Theatre De La Mer – Route De La Corniche – Sete – An open air theatre with a view behind the stage of the beautiful Mediterranean sea as far as the eye can see. It sits right on the Mediterranean coastline and is only 10 minutes away by walk from the ST Christ.

STREET PARTY – 26 quai Aspirant Herber – 34200 Sète – the street between the CRAC “Regional Centre of Contemporary Art” and the canal will be blocked off, making way to a unique inner city festival experience with a diverse selection of artists.

And if the line-up and the sick venues weren’t enough, the accommodation, travel and price  just makes it a whole lot better:

Bungalows – The Castellas campsite has bungalows for groups of up to 8 people.

ApartmentsIf you wish to rent an apartment, you can contact the local estate agencies. The agency Amarine offers rental periods adapted to the festival, with apartments at only 400 meters from our beach venue.

Travel – This year we are also introducing a real WF bus network that will facilitate your transfers from all the different venues. A 24h service will run between the Castellas Campsite, beach, Theatre de la Mer, St Christ and the city centre to give you the maximum comfort and save all your energy for the dancefloors.

YES! A festival that covers everything that I am looking for.
