Villette Sonique 2014
Various locations, June 2-8 2014
For the last eight 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 2014's is better – and considerably bigger – than ever: a head-turning selection of gigs and sets that includes Four Tet, Pilooski, Sister Iodine and Todd Terje (who closes the festival with a late-night Sunday set). The festival's trump card is its generous programme of free open-air gigs in the park, which take place on the Saturday and Sunday afternoons (this year, don't miss Hailu Mergia or Golden Teacher).
