Always on the lookout for new ways to show off the city, this year Nuits Sonores is visiting some of Lyon’s most iconic squares to organise three open-air events (free of charge and open to all) featuring up-and-coming artists and established figures from the local scene.

The festival reopens the chapter of partying in public spaces with an event around the history of Raï in Lyon and Guillotière. The programme for this day at Place Guichard has been designed around the digger and documentary filmmaker Hadj Sameer, and his documentary Raï is not dead: a film that retraces the history of this genre in France, and particularly in Lyon, with contemporary communities that perpetuate this heritage with Kabylie Minogue and Mystique on stage.

This event is free, no reservation needed

All of Nuits sonores: 20 years main venues are accessible to people with disabilities.
