|Event Date / Time:|
Main Square Festival is held in the town of Arras in Northern France during the first weekend of July. Its first edition was held in 2004 and since then, it has had some impressive lineups with gigantic names such as Metallica, Iron Maiden, Radiohead, System of a Down, Muse and Coldplay. A nice feature of this festival is that many of the acts are being filmed in high definition by an on-site professional crew and shared for free on the web.
The festival site is in the town of Arras, just a pleasant 20-minute walk from its main square. It has two stages, the Main Stage and the Greenroom, which host artists from various music genres.
