The Maintenant Festival new edition will take place in Rennes from October 5th to 14th. As every year, the ambition of this beautiful event will aim to introduce the public to the emerging artistic scene, between art, music and technology. In the heart of the city of Rennes and its surroundings, unique artistic moments will be offered.

The public will be invited to browse the many installations, creations and experiments of the artists who will have for playgrounds the monuments of the Rennes inheritance and its atypical places. It will also be possible to attend conferences. All the ingredients are there to get to know, discover and understand current artistic creativity.
