It's not just about the music, Croissant Neuf Summer Party puts as much emphasis on activities as the line-up there is always something engaging, exciting or eccentric going on - whether it's taking in walkabout theatre or circus performance; trying out the abundance of arts, crafts and workshops; joining the glow of the night time lamp parade; attempting to master the mutated wonders of the crazy bikes or playing with the treasure-chest of circus equipment poured over the site.

Run by a family with families in mind, Croissant Neuf Summer Party creates a safe, welcoming haven to take the kids to. The community spirit is as prevalent as the green ethos that permeates the festival. As with last years event, all of the facilities on site - the venues, eateries, bar, toilets and general lighting (basically everything) are completely solar powered.
