Name: Rock En Seine
Where: Paris, France
When: 23 – 25 August
Perched just to the west of Paris, Rock En Seine has become renowned for its yearly August weekender which sees some of the best names in music descend on the festival’s five stages.
Taking the first place on 2019’s bill are British music legends The Cure. Set to bring one of their famous three-hour sets to France’s capital, the band will take to the stage to close the festival’s opening day (August 23rd). With more bands yet to be announced for 2019, the festival is once again looking to dwarf its previous lineups.
I've waited hours for this !

Beginning in 2003 the festival’s first edition saw Beck, PJ Harvey and Massive Attack thread its boards, with the likes of The White Stripes, Muse, Pixies, Radiohead, The Prodigy, Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys and Green Day among countless other names taking over the site in the following years.
Also Look Out For:
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 on November 7th at midday. For more information head over to the Rock En Seine website.
