History

1989 marked the first time round for the festival, when it went under the name Le Ballon - Territoire de musiques, named after the nearby Ballon d'Alsace. The festival was organised to take place on the Ballon d'Alsace, but the peninsula on the Malsaucy lake was chosen in the end. It was the brainchild of the Conseil général of the Territoire de Belfort, who wanted to dynamise their département with a big cultural event for its youths.

In 1990 the festival was renamed les Eurockéennes de Belfort.

Statistics:

  • 10,000 revellers in 1989
  • 70,000 revellers in 1993
  • 80,000 revellers in 2002
  • 95,000 revellers in 2004
  • 100,000 revellers in 2006
  • 100,000 revellers in 2008

Site

Les Eurockéennes takes place on the peninsula of Lake Malsaucy, 10 kilometres from Belfort. A number of different stages are present – la Grande Scène, le Chapiteau, la Loggia and la Plage. Most of the time there are simultaneous concerts on different stages; altogether in 2005 there were about 70.

A campsite, 3 km from the main site, is the free temporary home to 15000 festival-goers, with a free shuttle bus running between the campsite and the entrance to the main area.

Les tremplins

Tremplins (stepping stones) are organised to allow youth groups to get to know one another. These are organised in Alsace, Bourgogne, Franche-Comté (Doubs, Jura, Haute-Saône and Territoire de Belfort), Lorraine, Germany and Switzerland.
