Springboard to Montcul

Use Montcul as springboard

Plane’R Fest, resolutely a rock festival, will be held on 7 and 8 July 2023 in Colombier-Saugnieu (near Lyon St Exupéry airport), more precisely in the centre of “Montcul”!

As every year (since 2018), a place is reserved for a regional band who will have the pleasant task of opening the festivities on TERMINAL 1 (Main Stage), on Saturday 8 July. The Plane’R Fest team decided to set up a springboard, in partnership with Rock’n Eat and Mediatone, in order to select the lucky one!
