The French festival is extending its programme by launching a new daytime location for the first time as part of the 2023 edition.

Positive Education have announced that they will be using a new venue for 2023 – it will host music as part of a daytime programme.

Formerly devoted to the manufacture of machinery used in the Saint-Etienne mines, Halle Papaz will become an exciting new home for the acclaimed festival. The warehouse was responsible for the engineering behind a number of industrial materials but was closed one year ago and has remained empty ever since.

Comprised of large halls, it is the ideal playground for the festival’s new daytime format and holds a firm connection to the industrial roots and mining origins of Saint Etienne.


This year the festival will play host to the likes of Donato Dozzy, Monolake, CCL, Forest Drive West, Upsammy and many more.

Since 2017 the festival has taken place in the manufacturing district of Saint Etienne and will return between the 31st of October and the 5th of November later this year.
