Following RBMA Paris 2015 and last year’s inaugural edition of the Paris Festival, we were thrilled to return to the French capital from September 25-30 for a third straight year of our acclaimed event series.
Over the course of six days, we put on live performances, club nights, lectures and exhibitions throughout the City of Light at some of its most unique venues. The festival set out once again to explore and celebrate Paris’s cultural heritage and rich local scenes, featuring a diverse range of artists and presentations.
This year’s program included a public conversation with Charlotte Gainsbourg, a celebration of ambient music in the basement of Palais de Tokyo with GAS, Midori Takada, Tim Hecker, Prurient and Pan Daijing, a meeting of the legendary American beatmaker The Alchemist with Franco-Belgian up-and-coming rap talents for a mixtape and an unprecedented concert, an immersive exhibition by Michèle Lamy, a big boogie funk party with Micky Milan and Horse Meat Disco in a mythical temple, and a night in the heart of Montreuil with Marie Davidson, Not Waving, Zombie Zombie and Laetitia Sadier amongst many others. Check out the photo highlights below!
