Because of the health crisis and following the ban of festivals in France until mid-July, We Love Green Festival 2020 said to be back in Paris on Saturday, June 6 and Sunday 7, 2020 at the Bois de Vincennes is cancelled and postponed to June 5 and 6, 2021.

Following Emmanuel Macron's address and the ban of festivals in France until mid-July, We Love Green festival - initially planned on June 6 and 7, 2020 at the Bois de Vincennes - is cancelled and postpone dto 2021.
In a press release, organizers have explained: "The lineup was set, the festival was being set up, Lada Del Rey confirmed and we were counting the days left until the big rush, umpatient to see you again in the Bois de Vincennes to sing in front of the Canopée, dance with our arms up in the air under the Lalaland, jump under the Clairière, stuff our faces at the foodcourt, think together at the Think Tank around all these artists, creators, chefs, thinkers from every background.
Then Covid-19 came to our planning, crushing months of works, and forcing us to stop. Day after dayn the probability to host We Love Green in June went away but the idea to renouncee was crazy. So, we worked hard on every case scenario with artists, their agents, partners, institutions, friend festivals to reorganize and postpone the festival to September. It was crazy, but we were almost there.
And we had to be realistic after the announcement on Monday that festivals were banned until mid-July. Health risks remain too high and insecure for the safety of our festivalgoers, what we first care of".
We Love Green is then postponed to Saturday June 5 and Sunday June 6, 2021 at the Bois de Vincennes, it will be the 10th edition of the festival.
Note that tickets remain valid for 2021. Of you can "join the #solidarityticket movement and donate your ticket to the festival to support culture". If you cannot be here in 2021, the festival will tell you soon how to be repaid and modalities.
You may remember that after taking a year off in 2013, the We Love Green Festival came back strong in 2014, taking over the Parc de Bagatelle for two exceptional days. This third edition welcomed Foals, Cat Power, Lorde, London GRammar and even Pedro Winter.
In 2016, PJ Harvey, LCD Soundsystem, Diplo, Air and Hot Chip came to the hotspot - the festival new field in Bois de Vincennes. The outcome? This edition 2016 welcomed 47,000 festivalgoers (record for attendance), as well as 43 concerts and DJ sets and 31 speakers including a conference by modern art poet Olafur Eliasson.
After successful editions in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Festival We Love Green will bnot be e back on Saturday June 6 and Sunday 6, 2020 and take over the Bois de Vincennes in Paris 12th arrondissement because of Covid-19.
For the record, We Love Green provides every year: Several music stages in the heart of the woods, 1 Think Tank stage a Green ideas lab, committed restaurants, over 100 concerts, DJ sets and the site will be fitted all over again, and let's not forget about the inspiring conferences.
After Chritisne and The Queens, Tame Impala, Booba, Future, Aya Nakamura, Metronomy and even Flavien Berger and Laurent Garnier in 2019, who were the artists for this lineup 2020? Well, Lana Del Rey was the first official headline. The American artist would have taken over the Bois de Vincennes on Sunday June 7, 2020.
Asking for more? Bad Bunny, Lomepal, Ninho, Disclosure or even Hamza & SCH along with London Grammar and Sébastien Tellier would have been in.
Because of the health crisis, We Love Green postpones the edition 2020 to June 5 and 6, 2021.
