When? September 24-27 2015.
What? A young, multigenre festival organised by two prodigies of the Parisian party scene
The second instalment of the Macki Music Festival looks set to be an unmissable event. The brainchild of two kingpins of the Parisian party scene, DJ Mamie's collective and the label Cracki, the festival combines a quality line-up with the novelty value of a brand new venue. Given the organisers, we'd have expected an electro-heavy line-up, but au contraire: the programme takes in the likes of house DJs Jay Daniel and Kyle Hall, as well as Isaac Delusion's pop beats and the legendary hip-hop strains of Lords of the Underground and rap prodigy Rejjie Snow.
The festival proper takes place over the weekend of September 24-27, in an open-air park in Carrières-sur-Seine. The music (literally) takes centre stage, but the vast site will boast a panoply of peripheral attractions, including pop-up massage parlours, record shops and plenty of food stands. This year's line-up includes ZA (Wu Tang-Clan), Nightmares On Wax (live), Tony Allen, Romare (live), SILK Rhodes, Orlando Julius & The Heliocentrics, Genius of Time, Caandides, Chester Watson, SHUNGU, Syracuse, Bon Voyage, Ménage à Trois, Archipel, Trio Combo Brasil, Le Camion Bazar...
