For the last ten years, the Villette Sonique festival has brought the Parc de la Villette to life every spring, and since the renovations of the Grande Halle, it’s become an unmissable rock and electro event for music-mad Parisians. The line-up has expanded year on year, and las t year's was better – and considerably bigger – than ever: a head-turning selection of gigs and sets that included Thee Oh Sees, Battles, Clark, King Khan and The Shrines and newcomer Shamir. 2016’s dates and lineup are still under wraps, but expect a similarly eclectic selection. As ever, the festival's trump card will no doubt be its generous programme of free open-air gigs in the park, which take place on the Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
