Practical information on the gathering

Getting there :

The gathering will take place in the south of France on the Larzac plateau, about 20km south of the town of Millau and 100km northwest of Montpellier. It will be centred on the village of the Hospitalet.

Car : The A75 motorway crosses the Larzac plateau and runs between Clermont Ferrand in the north and Beziers in the south. Sections of the motorway are still under construction however. When coming from the north, take the N9 highway a few kilometres before Millau. From Montpellier, follow the N109, direction Millau.

Train and bus : There are numerous trains daily from Paris to Montpellier. The TGV takes around 3 ½ hours. There are also slow trains from Beziers to Millau and from Paris direct to Millau (see http://www.sncf.com). From Montpellier, La Populaire (tel : 04 67 58 75 95) runs a bus service to Millau. Buses leave from the gare routière (bus station), which is next to the train station, and take roughly two hours. Last bus daily is at 6.30pm. Pay on the bus and get off at l'Hospitalet.

Flights from the UK : Ryan air (http://www.ryanair.ie) flies daily from London Stansted to Montpellier, Nîmes and Rodez (capital of the department of Aveyron). From Nîmes take the train to Montpellier and then the bus to l'Hospitalet (see above). From Rodez La Populaire buses run to Millau and sometimes on to Montpellier (tel: 05 65 68 11 13).




Free camping space will be provided from Friday 8 August. Food and drink will be available on site. Beyond the camping sites available it will be difficult to find hostel or hotel accommodation at this time of year, though a certain amount of accommodation will be reserved for performing artists, their road crew etc.

The fact that camping and entertainment will be free does not mean that no costs are involved. Please feel free to contribute financially to the organisation of the gathering.
