La Route Du Rock Festival 2009 - My Bloody Valentine, Horrors, The Kills, Grizzly Bear, Peaches


La Route Du Rock Festival

France’s premier summer music festival La Route Du Rock will take place August 14-16th 2009.

Initial confirmations point to a characteristically creative international lineup, including shoegaze pioneers My Bloody Valentine alongside the recently made-over Horrors, NYC’s Telepathe, US post-rock legends Tortoise, London rock ‘n’ roll band The Kills and Berlin electroclash queen Peaches.

Held in and around the beautiful walled seaside city of St. Malo in Brittany, La Route Du Rock has seen headline sets from Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, Sigur Ros, Foals, Breeders, Mogwai, The National and Tindersticks in recent years, and always has a great supporting bill of up-and-coming bands from around Europe. With a beach stage in the daytime and a spectacular castle stage by night, La Route Du Rock mixes amazing lineups with a truly stunning setting.

Over its nineteen years, La Route Du Rock has become known for specialized and daring line-ups, harmoniously combining recognized artists and new talents who, each year, enable music lovers to discover creations from all corners of contemporary music.
