CIC – Hand in hand with a truly ambitious festival

2019 sees the 7th edition of the Aix-en-Provence Easter Festival. It has become a part of the European cultural landscape, fulfilling its initial ambition, many times over.

The 2018 edition saw record audience numbers and immensely positive media coverage, in particular online and on social networks.

This year, the Aix-en-Provence Easter Festival aims to delight audiences even more with the addition of an extra festival weekend.

Culture is very much to the fore in the CIC's sponsorship plan, with an emphasis on classical music, with the aim of promoting creativity and encouraging the general public to take an interest. The CIC partners La Folle Journée de Nantes, the musical season at the Hôtel National des Invalides and the Victoires de la Musique Classique, and also supports the Besançon, Colmar and Maguelone festivals, the Flâneries Musicales de Reims and the Festival d'Art Lyrique d'Aix-en-Provence since its inception.

We acknowledge the passionate commitment shown by the directors - Renaud Capuçon, Dominique Bluzet and their teams – in support of art and entertainment. Thanks to them, the festival is a huge success and we are thrilled to share in the adventure. We sincerely hope that our faithful audiences, both newcomers and regulars, have a festival that is packed with emotion and discovery.
