GUITARES AU BEFFROI 8th EDITION
Guitares au Beffroi
International Guitar Festival & Salon | Paris-Montrouge
Guitares Au Beffroi is a festival created around the passion for the guitar, organized by the eponymous association for anyone who's got a hit on guitar.
Taking place over 3 days, and spreading over the whole 4 floors of the Beffroi, the festival will stage 4 prestigious concerts at night, and during day time, the Salon de la Belle Guitare will exhibit all manufacturers and hand makers, luthiers selected for their "savoir faire" and their high-end pieces. We will also feature 40 demonstration shows, over 7 private rooms.
In 2019, the festival brought together 94 luthiers from 14 different countries, and opened a space dedicated to classical guitar only.
For this 8th edition, the festival is going bigger and opens new perspectives :
• A new area to exhibit legendary guitars. This year, the Jacobacci guitars.
• Creation of the « GAB Awards » : 2 awards designed to highlight, through reinforced communication, the work of luthiers :
The Public Prize « 2020 Design Award » which will reward the most original style for a guitar
The Professional Prize « Innovation Award » which will reward the most innovative creation of the year
• Continuation, for the 3rd consecutive year, of the « Local Wood Challenge »*.
