Two main venues
Already underway in 2019, Arty Farty’s desire to shake up the Nuits Sonores format was heightened by the health crisis in 2020 before being put to the test during the special edition in 2021. In 2022, Nuits Sonores will therefore further strengthen its daytime identity and programming over the course of four long days on the industrial site of the former Fagor-Brandt factories, a venue that has been synonymous with the festival since 2017.
Running from Wednesday to Saturday, the four Days present us with a new opportunity to rethink the layout of the site and to rebuild the festival experience around three very different stages: the main stage (for concerts and live sets), a second stage (for hybrid performances and 360° video projections), and a soundsystem serving as an urban dancefloor.
And the Nuits Sonores revolution does not stop there. Because the new-look Days will of course turn into our Nuits, which will be held in a more intimate setting that is already familiar to our audiences: La Sucrière and Le Sucre. The venue will host one of the festival’s flagship programmes, co-curated by iconic artists from the electronic scene: and so A day with... becomes A night with..., featuring four major artists to be revealed next week. Their universes, stories and artistic connections will all be showcased on the stages at Le Sucre and La Sucrière.
