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.

A counter-current open-air is being prepared, abrasive, rhythmic, and no doubt a little dreamy too, in a somewhat retro-futuristic spirit: the machines' vocals will be enhanced by clear guitars. We invite the best band of the French cold-wave scene, the most flashy producer of the dark side of techno music, a rising star of the club scene who knows how to make cyborgs cry, a duo as chic as alien, another as sensual as obsessive, one who recomposes the Lyon-Istanbul axis with tendentious weirdness, and finally one who knows how to rhyme acid and sexy. We'll let you decide who's who, the best thing to do is press play.

Free access (limited capacity, reservations)

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