14e festival Solidays

5 out of 5 stars
Solidays 2012

Over the years, this Aids and HIV awareness concert has gone from strength to strength to become what is easily one of the hippest music festivals in France, let alone Paris. Headlining in 2012 are French splicers Birdy Nam Nam, and stars of French chanson Bénabar and La Grande Sophie; you’ll also find big names from the international indie pop-rock world, such as The Kills, Metronomy and on-the-up Aussie Nadéah (all playing on Friday June 22). Fans of the '90s are in for a treat from indie-rockers Garbage (Sunday 24 June), and Kavinsky will be entertaining the crowds with his atmospheric electro beats too, including almost certainly a tune from the 'Drive' soundtrack. Aside from the gigs, the 'Sex in the City' tent makes for a fun visit, with interactive installations on love, sex and playing it safe.
