Biarritz Festival Events
From surfing events to festivals celebrating music, dance, art and audiovisual programmes, Biarritz has something for all tastes.
One of the biggest and longest-running festivals in Biarritz is the International Festival of Audiovisual Programmes (FIPA). Taking place each year in January, this festival is dedicated to all things audiovisual - from television to cinematographic works.
Biarritz is also a surfing paradise and the annual Roxy Pro is a hugely popular event. The Roxy Pro Biarritz has evolved into a beachside arts and music festival featuring photography, paintings, sculpture and live performances.
For music lovers, the annual BIG Festival in July is just that - a big beach party bringing together an eclectic mix of French and international musicians - from Metronomy to Pony Pony Run Run, Moby and Iggy Pop and the Stooges.
Held each year over two weeks in September, Le Temps d'Aimer celebrates dance in all forms. The festival brings together some of the best French and international dance troupes.
