L’IDéal is our futuristic village, our place of reflection on sustainable development and society in general. Alternative, caring and optimistic.
Here we’re thinking that since the world is walking, it could very well turn, and turn round… why not?

This year, the theme of sustainable food will be important, however other topics such as the place of women in rock and hip hop or the issue of garbage sorting in festivals will be addressed through a cycle of conferences and in partnership with the publishing house Actes Sud and the magazine Kaizen.
The program inspires you? Are you curious? You just want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the festival?
