In 2018, the Festival is back in La Cité! Since the construction work in the neighbourhood is over, the Festival is expanding to accomodate the 2017 edition turnout and to provide a good overall experience to its audience!
What's new this year? The interactive installation Bains Publics (Public Baths)by 3615 Dakota & les 3 Points de suspension features a wellness zone at Place du Tunnel, an area included for the first time within the scope of the Festival. Also, there is a new stage on the place du Château that will host major performing arts shows. It replaces the tent La Nomade, a venue taken by storm last summer.
Last year's wildly successful stages, Grand Canyon, La Perchée, La Face Nord, Les Marches, and Great Escape (rebranded as L'Escapade) are back this year. Other areas hosting a variety of artistic projects include the Cathedral, neighbouring gardens, courtyards and plazas, as well as Pierre-Viret street.
