7pm - Pop and electric harp concert with Francoeur

Anyone listening to FRANCŒUR's music will be tempted to wonder: is she an Amazon? Is she a storyteller?

There's something surprising about the artist and her character. She is a not quite human creature living dangerously close to her dreams. A pretty, penetrating melancholy, intense and light as a feather, aimed right at the heart. FRANCŒUR is a hunter of emotions. A tightrope walker swaying on the strings of a harp, offering luminous French pop songs that invite us to reach for the stars, to get as close as possible to the gates of our imagination. But don't be fooled by appearances...

When she's not accompanying Bernard Werber on the harp for his show 'Voyage Intérieur', FRANCOEUR is on the road as a solo artist, and has already shared the stage with Govrache, Cyril Mokaiesh, Clarika (at Le Bataclan), Tim Dup, Nicolas Jules...



8.30pm - Chill-Rock, Pop-Progressive and Electro Folk Concert with Jekyll Wood

YES, JEKYLL WOOD's show is amazing. YES, he's alone on stage, but he sounds like a real band. YES, he sings and loops all the instruments in real time. YES, the show is polished, the sound optimised and the lighting set.

But NO, that's not the point. The main thing is elsewhere. In his lyrics. Intimate and powerful. In his compositions. Melancholy and groovy. In his masterful arrangements. Virtuoso and limpid. An interior road trip on the borders of chill-rock, progressive pop and acoustic electro-folk, at the crossroads of the worlds of John Mayer, Sting, Ben Howard, Tamino, John Butler and Steven Wilson...

JEKYLL WOOD is back on the road again this year to perform live tracks from his new E.P. 'Smokescreen', released at the start of last year, as he awaits part 2 of the 'Blinding Fog' triptych in summer 2023.




10pm: Electro, Techno and Tech-House concert with Dirty Crew

A young collective from Touraine, Dirty Crew is undoubtedly THE regional revelation on the electro scene this year!

Electro, techno, house, tech-house, italo-disco or even world, this young group definitely knows how to set the mood, with a varied programme that's sure to get you dancing!
