Country In Mirande
This one is for lovers of everything American, Country and Western!
The Country Festival in Mirande (just 30 minutes from “Michouat”) opens on the Friday in the morning and ends on the Sunday. The Country In Mirande Festival revives the concept of a popular festival, centered around country music, reinforcing Mirande as the country music capital of the South West with 13 outdoor concerts, motorcycles and American cars, horses, cowboys and indians, archery, lasso handling, a truly western atmosphere and country dances.
On the Saturday there is the Springboard, a Country Music contest with 3 groups competing, each playing in turn. The winner will play on the big stage on Sunday and will open the festival next year! The 2 finalists will play on the Place d’Astarac the same day.
The festival includes concerts by well-known Country Music artists, appearances by stars of stage and TV, parades, cars, motorcycles, horses, country dancing, bars, restaurants, shops – everything for the Country Music fan!
