The public will discover stunts, such as a motorcycle show on the asphalt where the front wheels lead the dance. We will also find the iconic Gipsy Wall of Death, a show where motorcycles spin inside a large capacity barrel, thanks to centrifugal force. This entertainment, where music blends with the sound of engines, caused a sensation last year. « It will be seven times over the weekend, for an additional €5. »

Next Saturday and Sunday! Come and see the Wall of Death Gypsy and the Sons of the Wind at Les Foudres: Motorcycles Festival / COGNAC ⚡️ « A rare spectacle today, the Wall of Death Gypsy is a simple attraction: centrifugal force, the phenomenon is well known.

If the beautiful two-wheeled vehicles are the heart of the event and the exhibitor village with dealers and brands from the entire region, all of the biker’s gear will be for sale. Three tattoo artists – Plouf’ink – Nomad’Ink and Ollie Heart – will also be part of the event with flashboards, like the hairdresser-barber M & Coiff’ from Victor-Hugo Avenue. The purpose of this gathering is to open up biker culture to everyone, and a vintage and rock flea market will unfold its stalls.

Du local à l’affiche

And to win over the hearts, the entrance will be free starting from Saturday evening at 7pm. From this moment on, the organization has gone all out with a lineup of top-notch blues rock concerts. Among others: Blackbird Hill, a garage rock duo from Angoulême and Bordeaux that is gaining popularity all over Europe, and Bo Weavil, one of the finest European representatives of the ‘Down-Home-Mississippi-Blues’ genre. They were notably the opening act for Lenny Kravitz during his performance at Cognac Blues Passions.

The Fête du cognac, a partner of the event, will provide its furniture for the bar and dining area. The cognac beer from Brasserie des Gabariers and Jukebox will be flowing, while the bikers will be cooking up batches of fries. ADN Moto and Maxxess Cognac are also among the partners, along with Auto-école de Crouin, which will organize slow motorcycle competitions open to anyone with a motorcycle license.

Des balades patrimoniales découverte du territoire en groupe sont d’ailleurs prévues pour les détenteurs de motos. Les autres devront se contenter de baptêmes moto en ville avec le club Spyder de Cognac, sur des bolides à trois roues. Des lancers de hache seront aussi organisés tout le week-end. Des fois le public ait envie de se défouler.

Une moto d’une valeur de 3.500 € et un permis moto. Voilà pour les lots les plus prestigieux du loto lancés par le festival. Juste derrière, deux enceintes Marshall Killburn II, trois casques Bell, des bons d’achat et de l’équipement attendent leurs propriétaires. 7.000 tickets de 10 € sont en vente, sur place ou la cagnotte HelloAsso du festival.
