Nuits Sonores announces 2022 night time curators
The acclaimed French festival will switch things up for 2022 with new night time curators.
Nuits Sonores has unveiled the first element of their festival programme for 2022 – they have invited key names from across the spectrum of dance and electronic music to curate night time events as part of the forthcoming edition.
These include balearic pioneer Dj Harvey, house icon Honey Dijon, techno and electro powerhouse Helena Hauff and cutting edge French dj Lala &ce.
The festival will take place between the 25th and 29th of May, a return to the springtime programming normally associated with the event following a rescheduled date this year.
Nuits Sonores has opted to reimagine its programme this year, refocusing both the day and night time curation.
“Arty Farty’s desire to shake up the Nuits Sonores format was heightened by the health crisis in 2020 before being put to the test during the special edition in 2021. In 2022, Nuits Sonores will therefore further strengthen its daytime identity and programming over the course of four long days on the industrial site of the former Fagor-Brandt factories, a venue that has been synonymous with the festival since 2017.
Running from Wednesday to Saturday, the four Days present us with a new opportunity to rethink the layout of the site and to rebuild the festival experience around three very different stages: the main stage (for concerts and live sets), a second stage (for hybrid performances and 360° video projections), and a soundsystem serving as an urban dancefloor.”
