The gates have now closed at Paléo and the music has stopped. Although there will undoubtedly be some campers who will stay on site for a few more days to savour the last moments of the festival, it all officially ended on Sunday night.
Next year’s festival will take place from 18th to 23rd July 2017. The line-up will be announced on Tuesday 28 March and tickets will go on sale on 5th April. The theme of the music in the Village du Monde will be from Central America.
At Sunday’s press conference, Daniel Rossellat said that many people had commented on how they liked the two pubs (the Voyager’s bar and the L’Escale in the Village du Monde) this year and asked if they could be recreated in 2017. He wasn’t sure whether they would but said “Watch this space!” He also was pleased that the festival went off this year without any major incidents or accidents. This year there were many more children at the event and although they didn’t contribute to the budget itself (children under 12 go free), they would hopefully be the paying Paléo fans of the future!
