Nuits sonores is a french festival entirely dedicated to electronic, independent music and digital culture where music, design, graphic arts and architecture are closely related.
More than 250 locations have been taken over and redesigned, from galleries to industrial wastelands, from rooftops to swimming pools.
The aim of the festival is to mix innovative culture from the past, present and future. Visionary spirit and curiosity, blending together big and new names, popular music and avant-garde. For 10 years, it has turned the city of Lyon upside down, for 5 days and 5 nights, like a giant playground for those who love and want to share this culture and this spirit: the one of quality of music, curiosity and fun.
