Fête de la Musique: Place Denfert Rochereau

François & The Atlas Mountains

If you fancy getting to grips with what modern French music is all about, sharpen your elbows and join the throngs at Place Denfert Rochereau where Ricard Live Music is sponsoring a vast outdoor stage. Four groups take the limelight: François & The Atlas Mountains, the first French group to be signed to the UK’s Domino record label with sound that apes indie chanson with dreamy instrumentation and plucky riffs; bright hip-hop slammers Twin-Twin; French heirs to the B-52s, Concrete Knives; and chanson queen Carmen Maria Véga.
