Kids and teenagers

Paléo is often a family thing. This is why free admission is offered to children under the age of 12. Children and teenagers between the age of 12 to 18 benefit from the student price. Children under compulsory school leaving age are not admitted to the Festival site after 22:00 in accordance with local laws and police regulations, unless accompanied by a parent or under the supervision of an adult. Moreover, access to the campsite will be refused to young people under the age of 16 who are not accompanied by a parent staying in the campsite.

Day nursery "La Luciole"

Until 8 years old

Located on the banks of the river, away from large crowds, the "La Luciole" daycare centre offers free games and entertainment for children up to 8 years old. Parents can leave their children there for up to three hours, as soon as they are clean. This year La Luciole is going to the land of the pyramids and pharaohs. On the program: treasure hunt, juggling, boom, crafts and many other activities. Because it's not just adults who leave with sparkles in their eyes!

The nursery is open every day until 22:00.

Sand, palm trees and deckchairs, it's hard to believe you're at Paleo!

Entertainment and games are all on the programme, alongside a bar that features non-alcoholic drinks at low prices. Drink without ruining yourself, that's the winning formula for basking in the sunshine under the coconut trees!
