The wildly popular French-style picnic in the park is back for a fifth year with all the fancy trimmings

On stage, you’ll hear from Nigerian-born rapper Féfé performing tracks from his album Mauve, as well as soul and funk musician Hervé Salters with his musical project General Elektriks. Afro-pop inspired Fránçois and the Atlas Mountains will bring dreamy electronic guitar pop to the park, and the psychedelic French indie-pop band Juniore will mystify audiences with their fashion and film inspired act. Plus, three piece L.E.J will bring the party vibes with covers of tracks like Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ and Desiigner’s ‘Panda’.

One of the best things about So Frenchy So Chic is spending the day drinking Champagne on the grass. If you’re smart, you’ll pre-order the hampers, which include roasted chicken or ratatouille baguettes to goose egg meringues and berry salads. Prefer to buy on the day? There’ll be stallholders selling mussels, oysters, foie gras, raclette, crêpes and macarons. Plus, the Laurent Perrier bar will be open for bubbles, rosé, beer and cocktails.

So Frenchy is a family-friendly festival and kids under 12 can attend free of charge. They’ll have activities to entertain the enfant terrible, from face painting to bubble artists, drumming classes and lawn games like pétanque and croquet.
