If there’s one festival that unites the young trendy French, it’s Calvi on the Rocks. In July, head to Calvi beach for the largest open-air club in France! This summer, the sea and the DJ set are waiting for you from 5-10 July. Get ready…
Imagine radiant sunshine, a cloudless sky, turquoise sea, a picture-postcard setting with the citadel of Calvi in the background, thousands of young festival-goers in swimsuits, feet in the water and a drink in hand: this is the atmosphere of Calvi on the Rocks, which has held an important place in the French festival scene since 2003.
Resolutely electro, the programme is divided between concerts and free sets during the day, some of which are accessible by boat, then paid sets at night from 9pm. From 11pm, everything takes place in the Théâtre de Verdure, which becomes a club until 4am.
Big names in French electro music
For free last year, festival-goers had the chance to listen to the French prodigies Fakear and Joris Delacroix, as well as established artists such as Cut Killer and Jan Blomqvist. We now await this year’s lineup:
AYA NAKAMURA / OCTAVIAN (LIVE) / MME (LIVE) / ROSS FROM FRIENDS (LIVE) / PEPITE (LIVE) / BOOKA SHADE (LIVE) ) / BOB SINCLAR presents HOUSE90 / VLADIMIR NIGHTMARE / GUY GERBER / LOCO DICE / SOUL VS DENIS HORVAT / FLOWER / KEVIN SAUNDERSON / MARTIN BUTTRICH / PEDRO ''BUSY P'' WINTER VS BOSTON BUN / CLASSICS ONLY presents SECTOR A (STOMY BUGSY + NEG MARRONS + ARSENIK) / PARA ONE / MYTH SYZER
Ticketed sessions will bring together some great names in French electro: Etienne de Crécy (Friday 6th), Arnaud Rebotini (Saturday 7th) and Ivan Smagghe (Wednesday 11th).
To complete the lineup we’re also expecting IAM, Teki Latex, Konstantin Sibold, Moscoman, The Empress, Lomepal and Polo & Pan. On Wednesday 11th, legendary Parisian techno club Rex Club has been invited to the turntables for the closing party of the festival, as part of its tour to celebrate its 30th anniversary.
