Les Siestes Nogent
After 7 editions in Paris (from 2011 to 2017, in partnership with the quai Branly museum) whose success was quite incredible, Les Siestes wanted a new challenge. We are therefore very happy to invest the park of the Fondation des Artistes, in Nogent-sur-Marne, for two days of free concerts.
Soon ;) But let’s make it clear: less is more. Assuming that our attention time is a quality that have to be cherished, we have decided to invite only 5 musicians or groups for this edition. Each will play twice, on Saturday and Sunday, by offering different concerts (very few opportunities for musicians to present several facets of their work in the same festival) or by inviting other musicians to join them. We consider that discovering 5 artists is already a very beautiful encounter.
THE VENUE : A historic and incredibly beautiful park, rarely open to the public
Les Siestes is the perfect opportunity to discover one of the oldest protected parks in Paris (1909). This wild 24ac park, quite unique, belonged to two English sister who gave it to the French State if artists can live here. One of their house has thus been transformed into a completely unique retirement home for artists and a dozen of artist residencies has been build in the park. There is so much to say about this venue. Actually it’s because of this venue, this park, that we’re organizing this new event.
