Fête de la Musique 2022: What to do in the Lille metropolis?
Move your ball. If Monday is ravioli, Tuesday is Music Day. And not just any, since the event will be 40 years old exactly. So you know the principle: music, everywhere, from morning to night and freebies. So obviously, there is everything and sometimes anything. Therefore, 20 minutes has made a small selection of events that will send heavy to the European Metropolis of Lille (MEL). Afterwards, we have the right to make mistakes and you have the right to go for it.
Crazy evening at the Hospice (Countess)
If amplified music has been banned from the streets of Lille, it is welcome in closed places. And since the Fête de la Musique is the perfect opportunity for fans to cut their teeth on an audience, why not take a look at the open stage organized in the courtyard of the Hospice Comtesse? The groups John Jon and Stag Stone have already preempted the times of passage at 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. There will be others.
DJ sets right and left
DJ Jean-Michel will not be able (in theory) to throw his hazardous remixes from his living room window. On the other hand, several places will welcome more professional electro, shall we say. Starting with the Bistrot St So, at Saint Sauveur station, where Hoodini (hip-hop urban vibes) and Grrr (jungle, UK bass) will shake the walls between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.
From 8 p.m. to midnight, on the rooftop of Flow, in Lille-Sud, the favorites of the last Open Mic (Lewoof, KOB, Wang DVS, Fefe, Shaakazulu) will perform in showcases under the experienced eye of DJ Coton Blanc.
Manouche and gypsy
It is to Marcq-en-Barœul that you will have to go to see guys playing the guitar with the neck in the air. The zicos of Tire Laine, which we saw recently during the Utopia parade, will be delighted to make the bourgeoises, and everyone else, sway on creations of Gypsy and Klezmer influences at the goose farm between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
In the process, as long as you are in Marcq, go for a walk in Place Clovis-Tiers, put a little gypsy jazz in the cornet with the group Up Swing.
If we played it more classic?
Because their parents are too lenient, music school students need a real audience like you. And for many of them, it’s in the Great South that it’s happening. From 2 p.m., hostilities will be launched with a concert “from baroque to rock” by the Painlevé school. This will be followed, until 8.30 p.m., by the Harmony Orchestra of the Lille-Sud School of Music, the fanfare of the Painlevé school, and the current music ensemble of the Faubourg des musiques.
At the auditorium of the Lille Conservatory, we will be more in the “See your way” register. From 6 p.m., the singers of choirs and other vocal groups from several colleges or high schools in the area will follow one another. Attention, these concerts are free but on reservation.
Big sound that stains
Drop the Claudine collars and put on your hair bananas. At the Black Lab, in Wasquehal, this somewhat whimsical place that 20 Minutes had already talked about, we’re going to play rock in all its forms: classic, pop, blues, indie post. Six groups “in residence” will use the boards of the brand new stage between 7 p.m. and midnight.
And if you really want to hurt yourself, stay at the Carré des Halles, in Lille. All-metal atmosphere for this double anniversary evening since the big boss will celebrate his own there in addition to that of the Fête de la musique. Four bands between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.: Sunstare, Death Structure, Unfate and Trapped in Freedom. Sensitive souls, do not abstain.
