The medieval town of Camon in the south of France will be the backdrop for the three-day Machine du Vin (cap. 10,000) festival.

Having already staged events, featuring music and wine, across vineyards in Australia organiser Wine Machine is to hold the festival in the grounds of Abbaye Chateau de Camon between 31 August and 2 September.

“Machine du Vin is a dream we’ve had for a very long time,” say organisers. “Our Wine Machine events have taken place in some of the most breathtaking Australian wine regions, but nothing can compare to the majesty of the South of France. We really have found the most magnificent spot in the world.”

Artistes performing at the festival include Bonobo, Booka Shade, Erol Alcan, Claptone and Hercules & Love Affair. Tickets cost €144 ($168).
