17e edition | May 28th — June 2nd, 2019 | Lyon — France
Imagined in Lyon during the summer and autumn of 2002, Nuits Sonores was conceived from the outset as a place for the brewing of ideas, artistic projects and cultural initiatives. 16 years later, the festival retains its vocation as a cultural, artistic and urban laboratory and built, little by little, with as much humility as determination, a demanding and scripted panorama of contemporary independent, electronic and digital cultures.
Illuminating the city and its cultural sites with a series of performances, events and workshops for 5 days.
In addition to its plethora of DJs, the festival is asking recognized names to help them select their programming, such as Four Tet, Jennifer Cardini, Paula Temple and Daniel Avery, who have done the honors in 2019, witnessing the status of authority from the festival underground.
The beauty of Nuits Sonores is the quantity of its diurnal and nocturnal events, which means that it is possible to alternate raves and tranquility Lyon ... Or just the raves. Up to you!
