Placed on the stunning backdrop of Domaine National de Saint-Cloud, Rock En Seine is a stone’s throw away from central Paris, with the Eiffel Tower just a 40-minute metro ride from the gates. With plenty of exploring in and around the festival site, there’s no doubt that the three-dayer will be our first choice for the August Bank holiday weekender.
With its first iteration taking place in 2003 over just one day the festival has flourished into a magnificent three-dayer seeing some of the finest acts come and go. Tickets for this year’s festival go on sale soon. For more information head over to the Rock En Seine website.
