Don’t let the name fool you – the three-day Rock En Seine goes beyond drums and bass guitars. For decades, the Paris festival’s lineup translated into the year’s top artists.

Spanning four stages in the lush and spacious Parc National de Saint-Cloud, Rock En Seine has welcomed A-list artists from a wide array of musical backgrounds – from new-wave to pop-rock.

Lollapalooza Paris

Deeply rooted in Chicago’s music culture, Lollapalooza is the music festival that needs no introduction. The American event takes its summer quarters to Paris to deliver the kind of lineups that would make any music lover instantly press the buy button.

Besides presenting an opportunity to discover tomorrow’s headliners, Lollapalooza Paris might be the only European festival where you can see Lil Nas X, A$AP Rocky, and Imagine Dragons on the same stage.

We Love Green

Cute, cozy, and committed to sustainability, We Love Green embodies the only three Cs you need in your life.

Bringing together hardcore festival-goers and environmental activists, the Paris event bridges the gap between contemporary music and indie talent. With a zero plastic mantra and eco-friendly workshops, We Love Green’s ethos goes beyond headliners and sets.

Marvellous Island

Barriers are made to be broken – or at least this is what Marvellous Island proves. Also known as one of France’s pillars for electronic music, the Paris festival invites techno greenhorns and house music enthusiasts to immerse into an Ibiza-like atmosphere.

With its beach location, visual performances, and list of underground artists (yes, I Hate Models and Sven Vath are included) Marvellous Island is a must for every electronic aficionado.

Since its inception, Solidays has been setting new benchmarks for what every music festival should be. Away from its multi-genre lineups, the Paris event is a festival with a good cause.

Every year, Solidays donates its proceeds to organizations fighting AIDS. Thanks to its pro-equality campaigns, the music festival has raised over €2 million since its inception.
