The Festival de Radio France et Montpellier is a summer festival of opera and music held in Montpellier, France created in 1985. The music festival concentrates on classical music and jazz with about 100 events, including opera, concerts, films, and talks, most of which are free and located in the historic courtyards of the city or the modern concert halls of Le Corum.


Since its beginning, the Festival has been entrusted to René Koering. Jean-Noël Jeanneney, président-directeur général of Radio France in 1985 declared the purpose the Festival was to "reconcile the classic and the unexpected, great interpreters and musicians making their debut, ancient accents and the sonorities of tomorrow... in the great tradition of public service"

The Festival is held in July (14 to 31 July in 2008, 11 to 28 July in 2011).
