Montpellier: Dance, rock, sports, transhumance … a lot of outings this weekend

We have to admit that we don’t know where to go this weekend as there are so many cultural, sporting and leisure suggestions. In addition, we can talk about the ongoing Printemps des Comédiens, the Synapson group that will bring the mood to Lake Ceceres on Sunday, and the party in the city’s “mass”. But I had to choose well, that’s the principle of choice. So here are some ideas to entertain you this weekend.

Montpellier Dance opens in “stereo”

Agora. Who will hold the 42nd Montpellier Danse Festival by name, other than Philippe Decouflé, a leading figure in the contemporary scene since the 1980s? His new stereo show is a real dance rock concert “dripping with rhinestones”. The work he booked for the premiere of the Montpellier Festival. First show and first event. And there are many more until July 3rd.

> “Stereo”, Friday-Monday at 10 pm, Agora Theater, Saint-Ursul Street. From 5 to 45 €. All programming for the Montpellierdanse.com website.

Last year’s good rock in the center of the quarry

Beaulieu. It’s the Beaulieu quarry, east of Montpellier, in the heart of the Garrigue, where these characteristic stones, created following the Miocene sea retreat 15 million years ago, have long been extracted. It is the place where it was done. While the two quarries were still in operation, this place became a place for a walk … and now together.

The GiantsOf Rock, the first legendary rock tribute festival that had to be postponed for Covid, will take place this Saturday at Theater de Carrières. The bill includes heavy music for rock fans: New Jersey band Bon Jovi, Group Rose Floyd Pink Floyd, SNXI INXS, and finally the 60s Follies, which provides covers for the 50s and 60s. A promising poster.

> Beaulieu Quarry. Site opened from 6 pm Food truck and refreshment bar. Admission: 20 euros, booked locally or on a regular site.

From sports to the beach

The first beach sports festival promises to be a festival.

La Grande Motte. Beach volleyball, beach tennis, beach rugby, beach basketball, beach soccer, wexballs, paddle surfing, triathlon, waterwalking, life-saving, ultimate, perfect Zen … and certainly more. Starting this Saturday at 9am, the first beach sports festival will be held in the town of La Grande Motte all day long.

With a free and free access stand, you can practice your sporting activities in a fun and comfortable way. And perhaps discovering a new field like Ultimate, a revisited version of Frisbee. Throughout the day, DJs and entertainers will provide entertainment on the seaside beach, Jacques Chirac Promenade.

It is within the framework of the Terre de Jeux 2024 label that the city intends to promote sports and broader the value of Olympism … Therefore, the main thing is to participate.

Queen Montpellier is back

Paylow. Thanks to Montpellier Reine, € 660,000 has been donated to various organizations fighting breast cancer for 12 years. After two years of absence by Covid, we hope that the most beautiful charity race will come back and break all donation records.

This Sunday morning, more than 4,000 runners, women and men depart from Peyrou, passing through the Fabre Museum or Cathedral and following Ecusson Street on a 5km course. We come for stopwatches, for fun, to run with friends, or even for good reason. Everyone is at their own pace, whatever their motives, the main thing is to be there.

If the start is 11am, Partners Village will open on Sundays at 9am, so early risers can enjoy many activities (yoga, photocalls, music groups, group warm-ups, etc.). In short, run to Montpellier Rain. You can register until Saturday at the www.montpellier-reine.org site.

Behind the scenes of preventive archeology

A weekend to discover behind the scenes of heritage and archaeological research.
Free at noon-Jean-Pierre Souche

Barte / Kurnon Teral area. Friday, June 17 (2 pm to 4 pm) and Saturday, June 18 (10 am to 12 pm and 2 pm to 5 pm) are part of European Archeology Day. Invited by Mosaic Archeology, an organization of preventive archeology, you can learn more about your profession at Domaine de la Barte in Cournon-Teral.

Operations Assistant Géraldine Lefebvre said: “The interest is to explain the stages of archeology and try to break the preconceptions that the general public has about this profession.” She continues. “When we talk about archeology, people think directly of Inlap archaeologists, but private archaeologists do a notable job as well.” And it’s exciting.

Many other appointments are offered as part of these European archaeological eras. With a radius close to Montpellier, you can: Explore the prehistoric village of Cambus and discover the ruins of one of Europe’s oldest villages (2,700-2,300 BC). Visit the old monastery of Aniane and take advantage of a stone-cutting demonstration. Enjoy the Latte Latte Museum for free or discover the work of an in-wrap technician. Visit the “La Graciere” area, a lesser-known place in the Castel Nauvian heritage that was used to store the ice cream that was unloaded behind the mules of Mont-Eguar in the 18th century. That’s amazing?

French DJ and Minister

It’s a table.

I will open it. He takes the opportunity to announce his new album, which is already number one on the download platform.
