France - GLENN headlines festival

  • GLENN is now confirmed as the headliner for this year's RAISMES FESTIVAL in France.

    GLENN will perform on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH, 2007.

    This is a Prog/Rock/Metal open air festival held in the park of "Le Château de la Princesse d'Arenberg" in Raismes, close to the Belgian border of Northern France, and is the only French rock festival north of Paris.

    As GLENN has not played in France for 6 years, it will be a great opportunity for him to connect with his French fans.

    It is the 10th year of the festival, so the organisers are delighted to have secured GLENN as headliner for their anniversary year.

  • Hello!

    My name is Philippe and I am one of the Raismes Fest promoters who have signed GLENN as headliner of the first day of the festival.

    I must say that we are proud and honoured to have such an artist on our bill. GLENN has played in France only 2 times: in 1995 and 2001. So this is a real event for us. I hope a lot of French, Belgian, Dutch and German fans will come and see him play.

    Please visit our site and let know to the maximum number of fans that GLENN is back in France!

  • Bonjour Philippe and welcome !
    What an excellent news for us, poor Frenchies, who usually have to travel to the UK to see Glenn live...:thumbup:
    I'm going to check your website right now.
    Cheers from the "Côte d'Azur" !

    How are you, old mate? I'm Phil from Apollo's DP Forum :bouncer: :bouncer: :bouncer: :bouncer: :bouncer: :bouncer:

  • Hello Phil! Here it's Phil...
    You're living not very far from us. Do you know the Raismes Fest?It will be the tenth edition this year.
    Please check our website and go to the forum to tell what you think about Glenn's concert in Raismes.

  • Hi Phil,
    Je viendrai au festival aussi. Amsterdam - Raismes est une voyage de trois heures. Est-ce un festival dans le jardin du château? That would be a great setting!

  • Salut Fedor! Tout à fait, le festival se déroule dans le parc du château.Si tu vas sur le site web ,tu pourras voir des photos de 2006 qui montrent bien l'ambiance du festival.Puisque tu es hollandais, as-tu remarqué que nous avons DELAIN le samedi, un groupe de chez toi ? Si tu fais le voyage (3 heures en effet) tu ne seras pas déçu de l'accueil.
    Fais-nous de la pub en Hollande, on en a besoin!
    Si tu préfères que j'écrive en anglais, dis-le moi.

  • Hi Phil - thanks for the feedback. Well my French is really basic so perhaps English would be better... I will check out the 2006 pictures - thanks for that!. I only know the name "Delain", not their music. They will also play Fields of Rock in June (


  • Hello Nathalie! If you are living on the "Côte d'Azur", c'est pas la porte à côté !comme on dit chez nous.But we have a lot of people from all around France, even south.Please go on the Raismes Fest forum to support Glenn Hughes' appearance at our festival because I have received some critics about the fact that Glenn will headline Raismes Fest.Some people don't know the chance we have to see him play in France...

    If there is anything I can do to help you spread the news, Phil, just tell me. For exemple, I could put a "Glenn Hughes headlining Raimes Fest" banner on My Space. If you have one, just send me the link. If not, I'll try to make one.


  • Salut Nathalie. Si tu veux mettre un bannière "Raismes Fest" sur ton Myspace, rien de plus simple, le code est sur le site du festival.Nous avons un flyweb provisoire avec GH dessus bien sûr.Je vais essayer de te le faire parvenir.
    Merci d'avance pour ton aide.

  • Glenn Hughes' concert in the Raismes Fest will be the only one in France. I hope a lot of people will come and see him on stage :clapper: :clapper: :clapper: :clapper: :clapper: from everywhere in France and from Belgium ,Netherlands, Germany and England too.
