Nuits Sonores, a festival that has always believed in the value of agility and constant reinvention, is adapting to today’s health constraints and putting its imagination to work. This year, the festival will be prototyping, experimenting and coming up with new approaches, full of the freedom and rigour that have come to define it.
For this special edition – the first summertime event in its history – Nuits Sonores will be reshaped around new narratives, questioning the role and position of the audience as well as its relationship with the artists, while staying true to the foundations of the festival’s DNA: independence, the urban setting and industrial aesthetic, the desire to showcase emergence and innovation.
The return of Nuits Sonores embodies a desire to reconvene and to share experiences, to celebrate an urgent return to life, to gatherings and to the spirit of togetherness.
See you in late-May for the line-up, late July to celebrate together ?
Health rules Everyone at Arty Farty has been working for weeks to put on a festival in full compliance of the health measures and organisation criteria demanded for the scheduled dates of the festival (20–25 July 2021). At present, this means that the festival has been designed to accommodate a limited audience who will be seated and socially distanced. As always, we are committed to keeping our festival-goers informed of all developments related to the changing healthcare situation.
