Hesteyade de Bigorre
The Hesteyade de Bigorre is the festival of Pyrenean song and tale, since 1978.
Bastien Miqueu envisioned the return of the singing tradition of mountain countries Béarn and Bigorre.It is part of a geo-cultural area; typically Béarn and Bigorre, but stretching outside these borders as well.
The concept of reliving this singing is to develop this multi-voiced practice in compliance with the social, aesthetic and structural codes that have its origins in the traditional Pyrenean society.
Needless to say, berets are well represented during the festival, and on the arty posters too!
