There is a great music festival called Les Transmusicales which is great--all kinds of music, everywhere. There is a film festival every year, though I forget what it is called. One of my favorite things was a storytelling festival (festival de contes) called "En Faim de Conte." This was just getting its start when I was there. That year, it was four nights long, with a different storyteller each night. It took place in an old church which had been converted into a theatre. The best of the storytellers was Alain LeGoff, a Breton from the coast. He's a short, stocky guy (a bit like Popeye), with a large, white moustache and a bright smile. He's great! If you are ever in France and see an advertisement for one of this man's shows, go see him.

nice bar in the center: nabuchodonsor going to a fest-noz is a MUST to get an insight into the culture, and anyway it is a lot of fun it is also a must to visit the north coast (st malo, mont st michel, cote des granits roses) as well as the soth coast (quiberon, vannes, golfe du morbihan) and the countrxside of broceliande with all its legends...

Definitely go to the market on saturday mornings in Place des Lices, and have a gallette saucisse (local delicacy!) have coffee at Scoop or Zing, go to Pyms for a decent club night, but a thursday on Rue St Michel (Rue de la Soif) is a must at some point!! Go and see Stade Rennais play, and visit other places in Brittany, its so easy and cheap on the train, St Malo is lovely as is Brest, and Paris is not far at all.

The Arvor and Theatre National de Bretagne cinemas were the best places for intelligent, independent sub-titled films, as well as great film series, festivals and short film nights. It was cinema heaven.
