Created in 2004 with the goal of becoming one of the biggest music festivals in France, the latest incarnation of Main Square Festival welcomed the likes of DJ Snake, Macklemore, Ben Harper and Christine and The Queens. Attracting a record-breaking crowd of over 125,000, the festival owes part of its success not only to the big-name three-day bill but the expertise and hard work of France’s crop of capable touring and technical personnel on site.
