France is part of the MOS since its early days. After being held in Paris and Lyon the festival now resides in Perpignan, a very nice city in the south of the country attracting many high-level artists and thousands of spectators.
Perpignan is a commune and the capital of the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France with a population of 120.000 in the city proper.
The metropolitan area has a total population of 300,000 in 2010. The city is located south of France near to the spanish boarder.
Settlement in the area go back to Roman times. Medieval town seems to have been founded around early 10th century. Besieged, captured by the French during the 30Years’ War in 1642, it was ceded by Spain 17 years later and began to form part of the Kingdom of France.
Hosted by UISC the Meeting became on big part of the event-calendar of the city. Annually artists from all over France, Europe and the world gather to turn the Casa Musciale into a Casa de Arte Monumentale.
Beside of the spectacular Graffiti-Action a vivid program of several types of urban cutlure will be presented such as Rap-, DJ-Shows, BMX- and Skating-Actions.
