Festival off d'Avignon
Fom July 5th to 28th 2019
THE FESTIVAL OFF D’AVIGNON
Initiated by André Benedetto since 1966, the Festival OFF d’Avignon and all its actors (artists, companies and venues) change Avignon in a true center for culture, debate and creation.
Spontaneous space for artistic creation named the « OFF », the festival has gradually extended throughout the town of Avignon now established in a hundred or so venues.
Passionate about all kinds of performing arts, the OFF audience is multi-faceted and plentiful, as well as constantly changing.
Originally perceived as alternative, the Festival OFF d'Avignon now has a firm foothold in the national cultural landscape. Today it is one of the largest festivals for independent companies in the world in terms of the wealth and diversity of its cultural offerings.
The Festival OFF d’Avignon brought together 1 538 performances in 133 venues in 2018, from 6th to 29th July.
