The Project

The Festival de Marseille, a major festival devoted to dance and other arts, combines a whole range of genres and cultures.

Dance shows, plays, concerts, installations, performances, films, public events and parties form an intense summer programme that takes place across the city: 3 weeks of events relating to the work
of highly committed artists, providing fascinating insights into their approaches and worldviews.

Diverse, festive and international, the Festival de Marseille reflects the energy and vibrancy of the City of Marseille.

Since his arrival in 2016, Director Jan Goossens invites visitors to share this diversity : " Marseille, the world, artists and local residents imagining and creating a city and a future together: that’s what the ambitious and generous 22nd edition of the Festival de Marseille is all about. The beating heart of the programme…" read the editorial of the 2017 edition

A festival in the city

At school
All year the Festival de Marseille develops educational and cultural initiatives for schools: from primary school to university, hundreds of children and teenagers have the opportunity to discover dance

and contemporary performance art.


2,000 tickets for €1 each
La Charte Culture is a system that helps underprivileged or disabled people to enjoy the Festival thanks to support from its sponsors.


Partner audience
The « Partner Audience » concept grew from the idea of involving audience members, surprising them and challenging them so as to make this cultural event into a great urban festival.

This year the twelve partners are Molly, Daisy, Fatima, Marie-Hélène, Ludovic, Anrifinat, Danièle, Thomas, Ouided, Cyril et Marie-Ange. Maybe you’ll be a partner soon!


Le Marslab
Le Marslab brings together young people from Marseille (under 30 years old) working in a range of different disciplines. They have an opportunity to enrich their approach by going to the shows,

meeting artists and performers, and taking part in discussion groups and workshops.
