Rock en Seine 2015

 

I went to a festival near Paris last weekend: Rock en Seine. It’s an established event (13th edition) which takes place for three days at the end of august. check out the lineup:

You can watch some of these artists in my report:

 

 

I saw Ghost, Handbreakes and Wand on Friday. My favourite performance was Handbreakes because it’s very rare to see Boys Noize + Mr Oizo playing together. Their show wasn’t only techno so I really enjoyed it. On saturday I saw Forever Pavot, Young Thug and the Libertines. I was expecting more energy from the last two but it was really cool to see them. On sunday I went to see Kadavar, Alt-J, Run the Jewels, N’To and the Chemical Brothers.

 

Overall, I think the lineup was ok. There were less big names than two years ago but more undergound artists. It was really focused on rock so I hope they book more dj’s and rap artists next year. The atmosphere was nice, we enjoyed a good weather so the conditions were great. I especially liked the vinyl shops and some clothing brand booths were you could get gifts. Check out some of the pictures I took during the weekend:
