Next year’s instalment of Rock en Seine will mark the 21st edition of the festival, and will also coincide with the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Paris. To mark the occasion, festival organisers will curate a programme, labelled Cultural Olympiad, alongside 4 other major cultural festivals.
The Cultural Olympiad of Paris 2024 aims to foster dialogue between sports, culture, Olympic and Paralympic values throughout the territory.
Discussing the milestone, Matthieu Ducos, Director of Rock en Seine said: “20 years after starting the festival, we’re very excited to announce the first bands of the line-up of the next edition, mixing the most talented artists we had for our very beginning in 2003 (PJ Harvey and Massive Attack) and some of the hottest talents at the moment (including Fred again.. and Måneskin).”
He continued: “This year we’ll make sure the festival shines like never before in the wake of the flame of the Olympics in Paris during summer.”
The announcement that Måneskin will be headlining the opening day of the 2024 festival arrives just days after the band dropped the deluxe edition of their debut album ‘Rush!’ – featuring new single ‘Valentine’.
