Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival


The Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival in Monaco was founded in 1974. Since then, every year in July and August, Monaco welcomes talented artists for exceptional performances. 

A reflection of Monte-Carlo SBM’s philosophy 

The Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival is a human adventure with great cultural significance founded by François Blanc, the founder of the Société des Bains de Mer, that aims to place dreams within arm’s reach in one of the world’s most beautiful locations. Every year the festival welcomes internationally renowned artists in a prestigious setting: The Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting d’Eté.


Monte-Carlo: an international music venue 


Every summer since 1974, the Principality has moved to the rhythm of the many legendary artists who have given unforgettable performances here. Rod Stewart, Deep Purple, Mariah Carey, Santana, Frank Sinatra, Shirley Bassey and Tina Turner are just some of those stars. Moreover, the Festival didn’t stop at attracting the world’s biggest stars in all the musical genres; It has also become a breeding ground for new talent, where young stars such as Jamie Cullum, Rihanna, Mika and Alicia Keys were discovered.



An exceptional setting


Since the start of the Festival, the Salle des Etoiles has been hosting the concerts and events. What better setting for the Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival than a legendary concert hall to host a constellation of artists from all over the world? 


The 1000m² Salle des Etoiles is one of the most fascinating event halls in Europe. The hall’s immense glass windows overlooking the Mediterranean and the Principality of Monaco and the retractable roof make it the perfect place to enjoy a show under a starry sky. The Salle des Etoiles offers mind-blowing shows that illustrate the magic and charm of the Principality of Monaco.


An exceptional creative director


The man in charge of the Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival is none other than Creative Director Jean-René Palacio surrounded by a team of 50 professionals. Since 2010, he has been working hard on the long-term project of making Monaco the centre of the international music festival scene. The Monte-Carlo Sporting Summer Festival is one of the greatest live music festivals on the planet, with a stage that is unique in the world and destined to please.
