GBB & AN TAOL-LAÑS
The 30th of June, 1st & 2dn of July 2023 at Langoned, Bretagne
What is “Gouel Broadel ar Brezhoneg” aka GBB ?
It’s THE one-and-only Breton Language Festival ! This iconic event, which was revived in 2017 in Langoned (56-Morbihan) after a few years’ absence, is completely unmissable for anyone involved with the Breton language. It’s the meeting of the year for all Brittophones – present and future – as well as Breton lovers, supporters, anyone curious and all your friends.
But it’s much more than a festival : it is also a place of activism. It is an opportunity to remind everyone that the Breton language is rich with a multitude of colours and is a vector of constantly renewed creativity. Nevertheless, the Breton language is classified as being in serious danger of extinction by UNESCO…
The 2021 edition
Come and enjoy yourselves, meet interesting people and get creative with us during GBB 2021. For those who do not (yet) speak Breton, the festival is a unique opportunity to discover a world that may seem hidden, that of the Breton language. It is an immersive experience, open to all. It will be an amazing immersion and discovery for some who do not speak or know Breton. A lifesize trial situation to discover Breton language and culture with your friends from far away !
We are expecting thousands of festival-goers to delight in our exceptional programme featuring the best artists of the moment. On 3 stages, large concerts, a fest-deiz and festoù-noz, An Taol-Lañs, circus, cinema, theatre, conferences and debates, sport, a craftsmen’s village, the digital pole in the Breton language, the village of publishers in the Breton language and cultural associations, children’s games, workshops… there will be something for everyone! It’s going to be a blast !
A few words on “an Taol-Lañs”
“An Taol-Lañs” is the only springboard for contemporary music in the Breton language. Created in 2007 by the association “Dazont ar yezh” (Futur of the language), it has been passed to Mignoned ar Brezhoneg in 2017. Now the springboard open each 2 years the GBB festival.
In 2019, Mignoned ar Brezhoneg had released a 14 songs album for the springboard’s 10 years.
