The Nuits de Fourvière Festival

A series of magical concerts and shows under the stars will be held at Fourvière's ancient Roman theatres. From the 2nd of June to the 31th of July 2015.

The  Nuits de Fourvière  festival promises more than just a show or concert – experience the passion and emotion of these unforgettable events!

Originality, variety and quality are the catch-phrases of the Nuits de Fourvière Festival, which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary this year.

You can choose between a total of 62 music, theatre, circus and dance shows, 9 new creations and 5 firsts in France.Well-established and budding artists from around the world are making an appearance at Nuits de Fourvière, so ready for some stunning performances.

What will the highlights of this year's festival, which defines itself as contemporary and ground-breaking, be?

The festival will open with Zinnias: The Life of Clementine Hunter, which is somewhere between a modern opera and a musical, with 20th-century African American music - vivid, dynamic and lively!

Lyon's electronic music scene is very well represented, thanks to Jarring Effects, a progressive and ground-breaking local label.

Also, don't miss Répertoire #1, which showcases some of the best Hip Hop dances, by Mourad Merzouki.

Another great show: Le Monde de Robert Wyatt (of Soft Machine fame) – a fantastic musical creation that pays tribute to a famous musician on the Pop Rock scene.

Two of the Fourvière Nights events have a Greek and Neapolitan theme - a touch of poetry, music and sunhine guaranteed.

You can forget about seeing Stromae, Fauve and Breton, Julien Doré, Phoenix, The Pixies, Franz Ferdinand, Etienne Daho and Elton John, these concerts are already sold out.
But out of the 54 remaining shows, you can choose between Bernard Lavilliers, ZZ Top, Klaxon, Angus and Julia Stone, Louis Chedid, The National, Babyshambles, Pink Martini or Agnès Obel… and many more!

To round off the festival, there will be three nights of partying, music and original circus shows, for all ages that should not be missed!

Spend your summer evenings out - beneath the stars!
