May 25 – May 28 Lyon/France
The Nuit Sonores festival will return this May 25- May 28 to the Fagor-Brandt Factories, a former industrial powerhouse at the heart of Lyon’s working class history.
Notable acts include KiNK and Bawrut, SHERELLE and Gabber Modus Operandi, plus live sets from Nicola Cruz, Bicep and a new live audiovisual show from SUBREAL mainstays Amazondotcom & Siete Catorce. After dark, the festival will move to a former factory warehouse, La Sucrière, on the banks of the Saône where four artists—Lala &ce, DJ Harvey, Helena Hauff and Honey Dijon—have each curated one night… and more.

Nuits sonores is a cultural, artistic and urban laboratory that was born in Lyon in 2003.
Serving as a melting pot for ideas, artistic projects and cultural initiatives, for 18 years Nuits Sonores has offered a select panorama of cutting edge independent, electronic and digital contemporary culture.
With its finger eternally glued to the pulse of the modern day and the future of the creative arts, Nuits Sonores champions forward thinkers and pioneers, seeking out tomorrow’s artists and emerging aesthetics, forever on the lookout for new uses and innovative practices.
With carefully-selected programming that is resolutely independent and fresh, the festival synthesises its key values of openness and diversity, championing the universal quality of music and encouraging artistic forms to break free from their shackles. It thereby fosters better interaction and a greater variety of experiments in different creative sectors such as design, imagery, graphics, food culture and architecture.
An accessible and unifying force, Nuits Sonores aims to bring together a varied audience that is uninhibited by generational, social or geographical barriers. This ambition is reflected in the festival’s physical presence at the heart of communities, districts and living environments.
Every year for 5 days and 5 nights, the festival inhabits 40 locations across the city of Lyon, including distinguished industrial heritage sites, iconic landmarks and everyday locations. During this time, Nuits Sonores transforms Lyon into a unique urban space of freedom, togetherness and sharing.
