Impossible to imagine the festival without Le Printemps dans la Ville. For a week, the whole city joins in on the festivities. It all started ten years ago, when loads of Bourges bars and restaurants began offering a cocktail of varied sounds in a warm, easygoing setting. All of the locals (or very nearly) participate in the party, with music at every corner, packed café terraces and concert after concert ? a veritable flood of creativity that perfectly complements the official festival activities.
