Speaking today at the conference, leader of the FN, Marine Le Pen, said: "Our individual and collective commitments go towards a cause that is greater than us".
French far-right leader Marine Le Pen is set to propose a name change for the National Front, part of a makeover created to make the anti-immigration party relevant again after she was defeated by Emmanuel Macron in the presidential race.
A new name, a new leadership structure and new bylaws are being unveiled at the two-day congress in Lille with the hope the anti-immigration party can become relevant again.
A recent opinion poll by Kantar Sofres confirmed the diagnosis: 55 per cent of respondents said they did not wish Le Pen to be the FN candidate at the next presidential election, and less than one in five believed she inspired confidence.
Bannon said he agreed with Le Pen's expressed belief that "it is not about left versus right", while blaming the media for having "always kept us out of power".
While Le Pen is facing no immediate threat of overthrow - she is expected to be re-elected unopposed as party president - her father, Jean-Marie, who was thrown out of the FN for racist remarks, continues to snipe from the sidelines.
Jean-Marie Le Pen said that in losing heavily to Macron his daughter had "not been equal to the challenge" - a sentiment echoed by many FN members.
Bannon has already spoken in Zurich, Switzerland at an event organized by a conservative publication, and on Saturday headlined the annual conference for France's National Front.
Since taking over the National Front's presidency in 2011, Le Pen has worked to erase the footprint of her father - who has convictions for racism and anti-Semitism - to broaden the party's appeal.
Now, she must backpedal to undo errors of her own.
Her poor showing in a final TV debate against Macron raised questions about her fitness to lead one of the world's biggest economies and in the months since both party and leader have appeared somewhat deflated.
The outcome of Italy's election last weekend has energized France's far right.

An election next year for members of the European Union's lawmaking arm will be the National Front's first chance to test its rebranding strategy. It won more seats in the European Parliament than any other French party in 2014.
Bannon, who served as US President Trump's strategist for seven months before the relationship deteriorated, crossed the Atlantic to embark upon a tour of Europe's right-wing parties.
