Written by english on 20 juillet 2018
The 28th summer edition of La Route du Rock will take place from 16th to 19th August in St. Malo, uniting France’s lovers of rock, and quality artists from all around the world. Ellen spoke to the artistic director of La Route du Rock, Alban Coutoux, about this coming edition and what we can expect. Having last spoke just before the winter edition back in February, Alban caught us up on how organisation has been going since the triumphant 13th winter edition.

Alban also told us about a gig that changed his life, seeing My Bloody Valentine:
