Brunch Electronik Paris, a family-friendly daytime electronic music festival, the perfect blend of summer fun and back-to-school readiness with its commitment to joy, music, equality, and sustainability.
As summer sunsets gradually give way to fall hues, there’s one event that perfectly encapsulates the transition: Brunch Electronik. Originating from Barcelona over nine years ago, this daytime event has gained international acclaim, expanding its footprint to Madrid, Lisbon, and now, Paris. Every Sunday, Brunch Electronik unites families and electronic music enthusiasts in an iconic city park, beautifully blurring the line between the leisure of summer holidays and the onset of the academic year.
Brunch Electronik is more than a music festival; it’s an ethos embodied by two strong pillars, “JOY & COMMITMENT.” The “JOY” element mirrors the vibrant, carefree spirit of summer vacations. The event boasts a wide range of traditional festival features like dancing, music, child-friendly activities, a variety of food trucks, and stalls by local creative talents.
Music, being the heart of the event, showcases world-renowned artists from the electronic scene, including the likes of Amélie Lens, Paul Kalkbrenner, Boris Brejcha, The Blessed Madonna, Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier, and Solomun. Moreover, the festival provides a platform to budding local talents and female artists, encouraging diversity and equality.
The festival is an oasis of family-friendly activities, the “Petit Brunch,” a space dedicated to children’s entertainment from 1 pm to 5 pm, including water games, a climbing wall, DJ workshops, inflatables, and more. A picnic area allows families to either bring their own lunch or enjoy the vast culinary variety offered by local food trucks, making it an ideal Sunday outing before the school rush sets in.
“COMMITMENT,” the second pillar of Brunch Electronik, encapsulates the sense of responsibility and maturity associated with the back-to-school season. The festival organizes various social, community, and environmental initiatives, offering an early lesson in sustainability to the younger attendees.
The festival champions equality, and “friendly spaces” ensure that everyone feels safe and respected, regardless of their color, gender, or sexual orientation. It also supports local social associations, raises awareness about neighborhood issues, and promotes environment-friendly practices. For instance, to reduce the environmental impact, the festival has eliminated plastic straws and water bottles, offers free biodegradable cutlery and plates, and has an innovative reusable cup system.
This year, the Brunch Electronik Paris is set to take place at the iconic ParisLongchamp Racecourse on September 16 and 17, providing a grand setting for the perfect summer-to-school transition. The legendary venue, located in the Bois de Boulogne and offering majestic views of the Eiffel Tower, beautifully merges tradition and modernity, capturing the spirit of transition that Brunch Electronik represents.
With international headliners like Carl Cox, Joseph Capriati, Ida Engberg, Paul Kalkbrenner, and Mathame, and a host of local talent set to take the stage, Brunch Electronik Paris promises to be a sensory feast and the perfect event to bridge the carefree summer and the focused academic season. A fun-filled, joyous, and educational experience awaits at Brunch Electronik Paris – a bridge between summer holidays and the back-to-school season.
