Few names are as respected among the French festivals as Rock en Seine. The Parisian classic will be held for the tenth time this year, with a rich, varied roster. The festival will be held on the 24th, 25th and 26th of August in its traditional location at Domaine National de Saint-Cloud, a historical park and garden located right next to Paris, only five minutes on foot from the Boulogne - Pont de Saint-Cloud underground station.
This year, Rock En Seine will have four stages, where bands that we love here - like Sigur Rós, The Shins, Frank Ocean, Grimes, Beach House, Little Dragon, Passion Pit, Bombay Bicycle Club and Friends - will be performing. Along with them there will be veteran names such as The Waterboys, The Dandy Warhols and Deus, alongside headliners like Placebo, The Black Keys and Green Day.
Both day tickets (49 euros plus handling) and festival tickets (109 euros plus handling) are available through the channels detailed here. But as a friend of PlayGround’s, you might just be able to go for free.
