La Cité des Congrès in Nantes receives the 20th edition of the Folle Journée de Nantes with the theme "The New World or the USA." This theme encompasses a broad panorama of American music from 1860 to today, with a focus on four main sections: 

  • The roots of the new continent
  • The United-States - a land of welcome
  • American institutions as commissioners of works
  • Film

In addition to these four sections of the festival, there will also be a strong emphasis on American popular music with performances of jazz, blues, Negro spirituals and Broadway music, from Show Boat (1927) to Hello Dolly (1964), through Porgy and Bess (1935), My Fair Lady (1956) and West Side Story (1957). 

With such a panorama, this year’s festival takes an unprecedented and fascinating look at 20th-century music to celebrate the 20th anniversary of La Folle Journée.
