Rock en Seine, Jazz à la Villette and Fête du l’Humanité

916,jazzok 2009 Rock en Seine On the festival front, there are a few big events in August and September to add to the music calendar.

At the end of August, Rock en Seine has a great schedule of big names playing. VINGT Paris will be there to soak up the atmosphere, with the likes of Oasis, Bloc Party, Madness, the Prodigy, MGMT and a loads more - the weekend should be a cracker.   Friday seems to have the strongest line-up for those not wishing to commit to the full weekend.

Special mention from us goes to three acts not to be missed:

- Vitalic, who is releasing a new album in September, but will no doubt offer French electro delights from their brilliant Ok Cowboy (2005)

- The Horrors from England, who released Primary Colours this year which has been nominated for the Mercury Music prize.

- And finally, the Klaxons who are finishing off things on Sunday, adding a bit of spice to the indie norm. Other musical events to look forward include Jazz à la Villette which kicks off at the beginning of September for two weeks. The 200 artists and 50 groups should confirm that “jazz is not dead”. Then from September 11th to the 13th, the Parc de la Courneuve host's la Fête de l’Humanité with Manu Chao and the Kooks headlining the music stage and a wealth of other activities, from theatre to sport.
