Each year, we count up half a million festivalgoers. This event has been happening since 1930 on the initiative of the French Communist Party media outlet. Yes, I am talking about the famous Fête de l’Humanité, also known as Fête de l’Huma!
2020 will mark a the end of an era for the festival as it is the last edition held in La Courneuve, on the current site of the Aire des Vents, property of the Seine-Saint-Denis department.
Set by the Aire des Vents du Parc Georges Valbon in La Courneuve since 1999, the Fête de l'Huma has announced it will find a "new place because of the constuction of the upcoming Medias village for the Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games 2024".
According to Seine-Saint-Denis department chairman Stéphane Troussel, "the perspective to enable this major popular event that the Fête de l'Huma is to be held one more year at the Aire des Vents is good news. I wanted to find solutions to host this citizen and very festive event in 2020 as it is deeply rooted in Seine-Saint-Denis image. It will give us more time to find a venue for the Festival 2021."
Meet on Friday September 11, Saturday 12 and Sunday 13, 2020 at the Aire des Vents at the Parc Départemental Valbon in La Courneuve for the newest edition of the Fête de l'Huma that will be one to remember.
On the menu, as always: music, meetings, exhibitions, debates as well as a book village, a social forum and a sport village.
In terms of music, although several artists already took part in the festival including Stevie Wonder, Cesaria Evora, Texas, Jimmy Cliff, Lindsey Stirling, Johnny Hallyday this 85th edition is likely to be incredible.
Following Shaka Ponk, Eddy de Pretto, Marc Lavoine, Soprano, Aya Nakamura, L'Or du Commun, Kassav', Les Négresses Vertes or even Paul Kakbrenner in 2019, who will have the honor to be part of this edition 2020? Stay tuned to find out!
