Where is it?

We are based in Saint-Julien-en-Genevois! But… Where is it ?!

You have no idea? It’s a city of 13 000 residents…

We are situated here:


Based on the border of Switzerland, in Haute-Savoie, 20 minutes from Geneva..

Why here? Why not!

Inhabitants of Haute-Savoie wanted to see the greatest artists of this planet, without moving from their houses. And yes, Haute-Savoie is the most beautiful country in the world, so….

why Guitare en Scène ?

It all started with a group of friends, passionate for music & guitar gathered. From this Friendship spirit and this passion, was born the Festival as we know it.

To make the instrument, with which we like to spend time of happiness & joy, known in a better way !

We are delighted to gather in the same place, people from cultural and musical horizons, aiming for the same passion, the same love, that of good music, friendship and especially on a human scale !

That’s the reason why this festival is something else, with its unique size !


Can we talk of a GeS spirit ?

Three main axis rule when we have to make a decision :

The first purpose is to offer great musical quality given by the greatest guitar players & bands, in a context of extraordinary comfort and proximity you won’t see everywhere else !
The second idea is to give a chance to local (or young) bands to perform live on our Village stage, allowing them to meet great professionals with whom they could talk and share experiences.
Our third goal is to guest some artists you can’t often see performing live in France or even some artists we discovered and let the GeS audience see them during concerts which will remain a wonderful memory. The artists prove their attachment to us by offering us surprises, such as jams with each other, special projects or even asking to add GeS on their Tour schedules. Each & every time they come to see us, binds are growing stronger and they give us emotions you won’t find everywhere else. For all these reasons, Guitare en Scene is the most tiny festival among the bigger ones !

A clean festival

We are a clean festival, concerned by the environment and a good management of the waste.

GeS focuses on respecting the environment, thanks to the sorting of the garbage, the use of refundable plastic glasses and free buses that drive you to the Festival or even inviting you to carpool to go to the Festival.

Your commitment will also be important to achieve our goal to leave a clean & neat place. Think of sorting your garbage !

Thank you to our boy/girls scouts who do every year a great job and thank you to our festival-goers who use the bins and ashtrays we provide them, that enables everyone to enjoy our nice and clean venue.
