ABOUT


Welcome to a festival like no other, in the most stunning festival setting in the world.
This will be the 7th edition of Convenanza. Every year in September, Andrew Weatherall and Bernie Fabre host a selection of left-field live acts and DJs...

Andrew fell in love with Carcassonne medieval castle a few years ago, and decided to create his festival there...

He did some research on the Cathars, a religious group which was persecuted by the catholic church and expelled from Carcassonne castle in 1209... That’s why he named the festival Convenanza: it’s the formal rite that made a Cathar listener a believer.

Convenanza is set in the picturesque location of Carcassonne medieval castle, the most jaw-dropping venue you’ve ever seen. It is the perfect location for our vision of an intimate festival, carefully curated for those who are looking for a more refined weekend.
