Cotignac Village of Rock 2016

For the 8th year in a row, Big Five and the Red One rocked Cotignac. Great music, dancing and German food and beer. Merci beaucoup.

Cotignac is a vibrant French village with lots of different cultures and nationalities all having an effect on each other. Every year this normally quiet village is transformed into a rock concert – the village of rock!

One of the annual festivals is the German rock band, Big Five and the Red One, who have visited us 8 years in row. It’s wonderful seeing the villagers descend to the bottom fountain to party with each other and enjoy excellent music.

Remembering the previous village of rock, we remembered to arrive early to get a currywurst and found ourselves a great spot. Enjoying the food and of course, the plentiful German beer. Makes a change from all the rosé we’ve been drinking.

It was such a fun evening with Marcel, Lizzie and I really letting our hair down and singing away the craziness of the busy tourist season on top of our lungs and doing our best to forget about work the next day.
