Calvi on the R o c k s 15th edition From June 30th to July 5th 2017


Welcome to a festival like no other. It takes place on a unique bay, in a (sometimes) eccentric island, between eternal snow and a UNESCO world heritage nature reserve. Welcome to our home, at Balagne, for the 15th edition of Calvi on the Rocks.

At first, we only wanted to gather up our friends in this enchanting setting, getting round the constraints to create the festival you know today. Slowly, the experience grew more refined, gradually, the scenography met the chiselled beauty of Monte Cinto, the dishes were tinged with the perfume of everlasting and liquorice, and the curtain rose along with the moon. The experience grew authentic. And, this summer, it finds it way to Communion, on the roof of the Cité de la Mode et du Design, in Paris.

If the festival amazes both artists and festival-goers, if it allows each and all to truly get away, it is thanks to the support of longstanding partners, who make our evolution and innovation possible: the City of Calvi, opening its beaches, its docks, its Théâtre de Verdure; Rouge Coco de Chanel and its brand new live stage on the Docks; the Grand Cuisine, setting up as the night begins; Mumm and its natural pool deep In the Maquis. Our thanks also go to Villa Schweppes and its idyllic beach, ba&sh and its Calvifornia touch at In Casa and Havana Club at l'Octopussy. This year, Batiste styles your hair, Diesel marries you, Caudalie relaxes you, Grazia shoots you, Swatch turns your wheel of fortune, Havaianas takes you to Copacabana and Corona takes you on a cruise as the sun sets and GARAGE makes you dance at the afterparty.

Calvi on the Rocks is a cocktail concocted by Jean-Marie Tassy Simeoni and his team at UZIK Group (GARAGE, COMMMUNION, LA MANO) and shaken by a tailored line-up we owe to Edouard Rostand. One thing is for sure: this cocktail is to be consumed without moderation, and for a long time still.

Come find us around dinnertime at the U Fornu restaurant, the HQ where all the teams of the festival meet. Impasse Bertoni, Calvi.
