Festival Fnac Live 2017, free concerts on the esplanade of the Paris City Hall

The Festival Fnac Live comes back in Paris for a new edition! On July 6th-8th, 2017, many free outdoor concerts will be given on the esplanade of the Paris City Hall. On the menu? Benjamin Biolay, Calypso Rose, Fishbach, Cassius, The Horrors and Julien Doré.

From Thursday July 6th to Saturday July 8th 2017, the Festival Fnac Live will be back on the esplanade of the Paris City Hall as well as in its showrooms to offer 3 free evenings of music to the audience.

Just like last year, Fnac will share some of its kudos and musical discoveries to the audience, without forgetting the new releases and the headliners… In short, all the artists supported and loved by Fnac will share the open-air stage of the Festival Fnac Live, from 6 to 8 July 2017, for about 30 free outdoor concerts!

Remember, 5 years ago, Fnac decided to spring a surprise by changing the concept of its live summer evenings. The Festival Fnac Indétendances used to take up its summer quarters on the City Hall for 4 weeks in a row (at the same time as Paris Plages), but wanted to change the concept back in 2011 by sending in a new name – Fnac Live – and a shorter version with only 4 straight nights.

A new concept that seems to have worked properly for the first edition since Fnac Live 2011 managed to gather around 60.000 people on the esplanade of the Paris City Hall, thanks to prestigious artists such as Moriarty, Christophe, Mademoiselle K, Catherine Ringer, Selah Sue, and Brigitte.

Last year, over 130.000 people have gathered on the esplanade of the Paris City Hall to cheer on Louise Attaque, Keren Ann, Synapson, Vincent Delerm, Hyphen Hypen or even Lilly Woord & The Prick.

The 7th edition of the Festival Fnac Live will open its “doors” on Wednesday and will end on Saturday. Three evenings are planned instead of last year’s four evenings.

On the menu of this 2017 edition? Benjamin Biolay, Calypso Rose, Fishbach, Cassius, The Horrors and Julien Doré. This 2017 edition will highlight young discoveries and will offer a warm-up to a label each night.

Just like last year, the Festival will also offer indoor concerts to discover on the Scène du Salon in addition to the concerts performed in front of the city hall.
