You may or may not have heard of the fabulous music festival in Corsica, Calvi on the Rocks. The trendy summer festival has just made the exciting announcement that tickets for 2023 are now on sale!

This summer sees the 20th year of celebrating Calvi on the Rocks, a unique festival on the beach of Calvi, where you can listen to live music in the glorious Mediterranean sunshine with your feet in the azure waters. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

Usually taking place over the first weekend in July, this year’s Calvi on the Rocks hits the delightful northern Corsican town from the 30th of June – the 3rd of July. Tickets to the festival must be booked in advance, with a choice of a 4-day or a 3-day pass starting from €153pp.
Founded in 2003, Calvi on the Rocks has established itself as a must-attend festival in the international music scene. Evolving over the years, it gets bigger and better, bringing cutting-edge programming, captivating scenography, and a complete high-end experience.

A unique event, this trendy French festival attracts thousands of festival-goers to the island every year for a celebration of electronic music, rock, pop, and Corsican culture. A huge line-up of worldwide artists come together to perform on this usually chilled Mediterranean island, enlivening Calvi 24 hours a day. Multiple beach parties (including secret ones) kick off each day, and at night, everyone gathers under the shadows of the impressive ancient Citadel for the headline acts.

Due to the location and shape of the bay of Calvi, there are pockets all over town where the music is sheltered, so many properties we offer can allow you to escape with minimal interruption. Others overlook the bay, enabling holidaymakers to embrace the excitement and appreciate the music over this renowned long weekend. If you are planning a Corsican getaway this summer, why not plan it around this amazing event? We have some stunning accommodation available to book, such as Apartment Maria Stella, a spacious and charming property that sleeps up to four people, perfect for a small group holiday. There are also plenty of great hotels within Calvi and its surrounding areas, which can be viewed here.
