Grab your headphones, lather on that sunscreen, and slip into your flip-flops, because we are about to transport you to the glittering shores of the Mediterranean. We’re not just beach-bound for some sun-soaked relaxation though. We’re heading to an electronic music festival where the tunes are as varied and vibrant as the attendees – Les Plages Electroniques in Cannes.
With its epic lineup and breathtaking venue, Les Plages Electroniques is a festival where you can bring any of your friends, no matter their music tastes or environmental concerns. So let’s get to know this eclectic group of music-loving comrades, shall we?
1. The Green Guru
Is one of your friends passionate about saving the planet? Good news! Les Plages Electroniques has put in place stringent environmental measures to keep the festival as eco-friendly as possible. From the elimination of single-use plastic bottles and the prioritization of soft mobility, free-water-for-all, to a focus on local catering, the festival’s team is working hard to reduce their carbon footprint. Plus, with the deployment of a Green Brigade to encourage recycling and waste reduction, the festival offers a haven for eco-conscious revelers.
2. The Electronic Music Newbie
We all have that one friend who isn’t familiar with the thumping beats of electronic music, but this festival is the perfect introduction. With a diverse array of artists and styles, from the mellifluous melodies of Ofenbach to the heart-throbbing beats of Mind Against, there’s an initiation for every curious ear.
The Plages Electroniques lineup is replete with artists who effortlessly straddle different musical styles. Hamza is one such artist, an essential figure of the rap scene who has collaborated with Damso and SCH, ready to deliver his most significant bangers on the Cannes hot sands. Also, Julien Granel, with his multi-coloured music, will turn the Cannes beach upside down with his summer hits that radiate 100% good vibes!
3. The EDM Enthusiast
For the friend who loves the thumping bass of EDM, DJ Snake and Tchami will take the stage and shake the sands with their infectious beats.
4. The Techno Titan
Techno lovers, you’re covered! Sam Paganini, a decades-long figure of the electronic music scene, will be there to whip up his signature percussive harmonies, while Stephan Bodzin, a figurehead in international techno, will deliver a mesmerizing live performance. It’s not all, the undergrounds heads will be able to dance to the house, techno and melodic techno sounds of The Blessed Madonna, Tale Of Us and Lily Palmer.
Extra bonus for your Parisian friend : Do not miss the set of Oden&Fatzo
5. The Beach Bum
Is there a better place for a friend who adores the beach than a festival that takes place right on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea? We think not! They can revel in the music while sinking their toes into the warm sands of Cannes.
6. The Afterparty Animal
Let’s not forget the friend who thrives after hours. The afterparty scene at Les Plages Electroniques features artists like Mosimann, Carlita, Nicolas Masseyef, Chloé Caillet, Tony Romera, and Jimi Jules. These late-night events promise to keep your friend dancing until the early hours of the morning.
7. The Trance Traditionalist
If your group includes a trance enthusiast, they will be thrilled with the iconic beats of Armin van Buuren, a five-time winner of the Best DJ in the World award. As the sun sets over Cannes, his iconic trance tunes will provide the perfect soundtrack.
Regardless of your friend group’s different tastes and preferences, Les Plages Électroniques has something for everyone. It’s the ultimate summer festival experience, combining incredible music, an unbeatable location, and a strong commitment to environmental responsibility and safety.
