Alt-J, Liz Green and Mina Tindle among the highlights at Hotel de Ville this July… if the sun is kind
As Parisian festivals go this one is pretty hard to miss completely. Fnac and their entourage completely take over the square in front of Hotel de Ville in the centre of town for four days every year with a consistently inconsistent bill of artists. This time around there’s sure to be a sizeable crowd with the superstore employing a crowd-pleasing strategy with French media darlings Charlie Winston, 1995, Pony Pony Run Run and Revolver all on the bill. There’s also a few more familiar names for the raft of tourists, including Alt-J, Liz Green and Francois and the Atlas Mountains. Here is the running order as it stands:
Thursday, July 19
Friday, July 20
Saturday, July 21
Sunday, July 22
Our top picks are Francois and the Atlas Mountains, Mina Tindle, Alt-J, Liz Green and Estonian troop Ewert and the Two Dragons, that’s should you fancy popping down to Hotel de Ville every day and be able to pull yourself out of your beach chair at the nearby Paris plage.
