Les Détours de Babel

Music in Grenoble

This impressive three-week festival of jazz and world music has a mix of big names (ticketed) and free concerts. Expect a programme that leaps from avant-garde orchestral music to Balkan brass bands, via Francophone soul and psychedelic rock.

Amplifying the festival's inclusive feel, it's possible to buy a 'solidarity ticket' for someone who can't afford to attend.
