Les Siestes in Seoul

After some experiences abroad (Hanoi, Brazzaville, Montréal and many more), the festival is very excited to meet the Korean culture and its artists.

Since 2007, les Siestes Électroniques increase their musical repertoire by travelling, meeting people, digging projects and doing some searching. Thanks to these foreign editions, the festival questions its own organization, its publics, and the way people in each country receive all type of musics according to their socio-economic context.

Dossier de presse / Press Kit
A million thanks

And a statement...

This year has been quite hard for us, French folks. It was thus a truly bliss to see that you were as many as last year to enjoy our events (maybe even more). It was delightful to see all of you, the student, the banker, the old IDM fan, the unemployed, the new bachelor, the queer community, the young parents, the dancer, the nanny, the refugee, the indie pop lover, the punk, the City counselor ... being so diverse but being part of the same event.
We truly think we, as entertainers, need to cherish this popular aspect of our events. The new frontier is not to be more cutting edge, more avant garde, more nerdy, but really popular. Our new adventure is to be able to reach diverse audiences while staying true to our niche DNA. Becoming one of the most quality popular event. Not the biggest one, nor the most famous, but the one where an eclectic audience merge to celebrate a fucked-up lineup.

Stay strong. Stay curious. And we’ll build together a more open-minded society.

SHAPE Platform

Why we won’t reveal our 2015 lineup?

This year’s edition of Les Siestes Électroniques will take place in Toulouse from June 25th through 28th, with one key change from last year: we aren’t announcing any acts!

Past editions of Les Siestes Electroniques have featured performances from the likes of Magic Mountain High, Redshape, Jessy Lanza, DJ Deep, Nils Frahm, Andy Stott, Modeselektor, Redinho, Connan Mockasin or Ariel Pink. But for our 14th edition, we won’t reveal this year’s lineup, meaning attendees won’t know who’s playing until June 24th.

Here is a small interview published in Resident Advisor of our founder Samuel Aubert to find out more.

You’re not announcing this year’s lineup. Why’s that?

It’s a kind of way to challenge ourselves. It’s very rooted in the way we have been developing the festival for years now. Not revealing the lineup is a way for us to say that we’re now all grown-ups. And we are a festival dedicated to adventurous music that demands some trust from the audience. This is also a way to free ourself from the business and the hype.

How do you think festivalgoers will react?

We’ve built a strong relationship with our audience over the years. People come to our festival without knowing exactly what they will listen to. They also know they won’t appreciate 100 percent of the lineup. Even the people involved in our crew are telling me : "WTF was this weird band about?" I have to challenge our audience, to push people in directions they won’t get by themselves. In a certain way, I don’t want to please people too much. But our audience is now used to that. So I hope we’ll benefit from that strange relationship we’ve built over the years. We’ll see.

Your statement is raising a point about reasons behind event attendance and the essence of festivals. How do you see your work as a curator?

Here is what I’m looking for in music: to be as thrilled as a teenager. Do you remember when you were 15 years old and you discovered a massive piece of modern music? I will always remember when I first listened to Autechre for instance. I was one of those indie-pop kids and it blew my mind. I suddenly became obsessed with IDM! I wanna feel that again and again, all my life. And I want to share that very moment. That’s how I see my work as a curator and this is what Les Siestes Électroniques is about.

Les Siestes in Paris

The 4th edition of Les Siestes Electroniques in Paris will be held every Sunday of July (July, 6, 13, 20 & 27) and will be starring Joakim & Kindness, Ron Morelli, Les Cris de Paris, Frédéric Sanchez, Heatsick, Bambounou, Frank Fairfield, Giai dieu #57. x This edition is a very special one.

Call for proposals

For the second year in a row, we’re organising talks and worshops along with our concerts. This "Futurism Meeting" as we call it, will take place in Toulouse, at the same venue as the concerts, a public park right in the center of the city, on June 28 & 29.

Who can answer this call for proposals?

This is an open call! Everyone can answer: musicians, hackers, developpers, students, journalists, advised listeners ...

Is there a theme?

Yes, there are actually three:

1) DIY : shared music and knowledge
The art of Doing It Yourself is in the reappropriation and enhancement of existing tools and software for exploring your creativity. You have developped or customized (hacked, in a positive sense) some software, tinkered around patches, programming languages, virtual or physical instruments, or are experimenting with original solutions with existing tools, and you want to show other people how you achieved that. You want to share your know-how of that of your company, in an interactive way that encourages exchange and with between hobbyists or curious minds.

2) Beyond passion, a real project
Get your name out there, make your music live and maybe make a living out of it, is a long dark road that deserves to be given some clarity. Nowadays musicians have an extensive amount of digital tools, often collaborative, for the creation, spreading and promoting of their music. But which ones should one use? What is their efficiency? How to find the right tools for progressing? What traps should be avoided? Whether you had a happy or unfortunate experience, have just invented one of those tools, are about to launch a startup on the topic, are experienced enough to explain on how to use them, or can introduce us to who is who and other tips and tricks, there is a lot to say and be shared! Feedback on experiences, presentation of tools for accompanying musicians, legal aspects of musical business or artistic direction, the musical industry involves a wide array of actors who we wish to introduce and confront to their public.

3) Beyond music, a rich cultural background
Music is not merely air moving, it can’t be reduced to its basic physical expression. It necessarily involves images and values that défine an aesthetic and social context that goes beyond just the music. It then appears important to be able to observe and dissect pop culture in order to demonstrate that it is intfinitely more than entertainment industry, and a decisive part of today’s society. Whether you are a researcher, a writer or simply an enlightened amateur convinced of the evocative power of your favorite aesthetics, we are inviting you to a debate around the visual aesthetics, generational conflicts, fashion trends, or language transformations associated with music.

What’s the deadline?

Submission deadline: April 21th 2014.
Your proposal will be reviewed through a "perfection game".
You may modify your proposal until April 30th.
Papers will be selected at the latest on May 15th

What are the conditions?

You won’t be paid as the principle of those meetings is to share knowledges between peers. But we’ll cover your transport and accomodation costs.


2014 Video Teaser

New year, new visual identity! Don’t forget our dates: June 26-29!

Les Siestes in Vietnam

Les Siestes goes around the world as much as possible and especially tries to reach unusual destinations once a year. So after Congo these past two years, we’ll settle down in Vietnam for some special showcases over there this October.

We’ve been travelling like this not because we’re in search of some kind of exotism. The reason is that we’re trying to push a little bit further the definition of what an electronic festival could be and one of the best ways to do so is to be confronted to different contexts and crowds. These are really enriching experiences!
With the support of the Institut Français and the cooperation of the Musée du quai Branly, we’ll then discover the Vietnamese audience along with Vincent Moon, Laurent Jeanneau and Jean Nipon. As usual a short film we’ll be edited from this journey (see the documentary about Les Siestes in Congo).

Over the past years Les Siestes Electronique has been on a relentless mission to unearth largely unheard gems from across the musical spectrum. Les Siestes Electroniques thus join the famous Musée du quai Branly in Paris to propose an Vietnamese carbon copy of the French festival. Born of a reflection around the themes of the cultural diversity, the project proposes to musicians an exceptional access to the audio collection of the museum (dedicated to non-occidental cultures). These musicians will thus be invited to sample a set of resources of an unsuspected wealth, and then to replay it during an ultimate public event.

The invited artists

• Vincent Moon
Vincent Moon is a filmmaker who started out working for La Blogotheque, a music website which has since become incredibly popular, due in no small part to Moon’s contributions to its Take-Away Shows project. The concept was to create single take film recordings of bands and musicians performing in unusual spaces. The result earned Moon international recognition. After a couple of years, Moon moved on from the Take-Away Shows to work on his own projects, making films for Mogwai, Efterklang, R.E.M, Beirut, The Arcade Fire and The National, before setting up Petites Planetes, a ‘nomadic’ film label which aims to document aural and visual traditions from all around the world.

• Laurent Jeanneau
Laurent Jeanneau is a specialist in field recordings who spent a lot of time in Asia developing his work. A long time practitioner of ethnic field recordings, which he releases on his own label (Kink Gong Records) as well as on Sublime Frequencies, Laurent’s work could be divided in two distinct approaches. Laurent Jeanneau travels to remote regions in order to record tribal sounds that characterize the life of remote ethnic minorities. However, his side project, Kink Gong modifies these recorded sounds in order to create moods and ambiences that translate into unique soundscapes. From the moment Laurent Jeanneau’s collage work reach your ears that your attitude to traditional ‘world’ music will be changed forever. His soundscape approach to so-called ‘world’ music emitted something really unique and captivating.

• Jean Nipon
Jean Nipon is an enigma to say the least. Hardcore drummer, DJ, sells records for two years in Paris at Katapult where he meets DJ Wet with whom he starts Teamtendo (Teamtendo was a duo of giant plushies who played 8-bit-gabber- electro on tricked-out Gameboys). Does some remixes for TTC, Ark, Micronauts, Cosmo Vitelli, Lesbians On Ecstasy, Adam Kesher, David Rubato. Directed three volumes of the DJ-oriented "Eurogirls" vinyl project with Orgasmic. Get involved into the Institubes adventure … If Jean Nipon started out as a drummer, he got into DJing since 1997. It then became something of an art form, and many a reveler remembers his seven-hour sets at Paris Paris where, as a resident, he would play the latest bangers in custom- edited form, plus Prince, Minor Threat, Aphex Twin and the Beastie Boys, Dinosaur Jr and Lio, Pink Floyd and Shellac, My Bloody Valentine and KRS One. What he does with those CD decks... Nobody can touch him.

• Vu Nhat Tan
Composer of orchestral, chamber, piano, and multimedia works that have been performed in Asia, Europe and elsewhere, Vu Nhat Tan is among the leading artists in the field of electronic music and experimental sound art in Vietnam. He also writes about contemporary music and is a lecturer at Vietnam National Academy of Music.

• Nguyen Hong Giang
Noise music composer under the moniker of Writher, keyboard player for the post-rock band Time Keeper, Nguyen Hong Giang is a young and yet talented musician that has interest in many different genres of music.

Les Siestes in Montréal

We’ve first been invited to play in Montreal by the lovely Piknic Electronik crew. Back in 2009, we’ve crossed the Atlantic ocean with Joakim, Jackson and Georges Issakidis to play on an epic gig under the rain. 4 years later, thanks to Piknic Electronik again, we’ll be back with Pilooski, Mondkopf and Arandel to celebrate a pretty special Bastille Day!


- Guru stage: 3:00 x 7:00 pm

Borealis is shadow, a darkness unveiling the presence of light. Borealis is wind, air in motion, a path forever within change and without permanence. It is an act of folding dream reality into waking reality.

Head of the fast rising imprint In Paradisum, Mondkopf has a love for the experimental, the industrial and the distorted that he shares with the likes of Kangding Ray, Kareem and Ancient Methods. The young master of concrete-crumbling techno got the rugged, freshly twisted rhythms that has made the French electronic productions quite famous over the years, but the vibe is now darker yet quite thrilling. Mondkopf’s cinematic vibe is thus sustained throughout, balanced equally with stylish dancefloor violence and is embracing with real intensity the influence of abrasive forms of metal music.

- Moog stage: 2:00 x 11:00 pm

Nany Leven
A perfect biological fusion between Machinedrum, James Holden and the singer from Pegase.

Arbutus Djs
Arbutus is an artistic community based in Montreal. Beginning as a DIY loft space, Arbutus Records developed to cultivate and promote the artists associated with the space. Emphasis on friendship and collaboration within the scene has lead to an increasingly multimedia oriented endeavor, moving beyond music to include film and literature. Arbutus develops a scene and culture, with each member’s success contributing to the success of the whole. Individual talents (such as Doldrum, Grime or Majical Cloudz) combine for a stronger product and artistic identity.

Arandel is not a band, Arandel is not a character. Its creator, more than a mere unidentified being, is above all a multi-instrumentalist who would like his true identity to remain in the background on this project: Arandel is a secret entity whose only function is to let the music take centre stage. Remaining anonymous to explore every given possibility, showing many facets to the world, all underpinned by an experimental sense of music: Arandel is a new workshop for this pop craftsman, brought up on krautrock, French electronic and Berlin minimalism.

With a deep love for the soulful and strange, Pilooski has developed a unique style that has found him a solid fanbase around the globe. As part of the D.I.R.T.Y. crew he has put out the now legendary series of Dirty Edits EPs, collecting forgotten gems, sometimes editing them beyond recognition. Between that and his love for early sci-fi, he’s made time to do remixes for folks that share his taste in music, which happens to include everyone from LCD Soundsystem to the Mystery Jets or Jarvis Cocker. It doesn’t hurt that Pilooski has a vast knowledge (and collection) of the strange and wonderful records of the past, often uncovering gems of french psych or krautrock that would still sound ahead of their time in any Villalobos set. As for his mix, Pilooski delves into his bag of tricks, combining rare slices of pop, disco, house, and other re-arranged musical selections into an oddly dark and psychedelic affair.

Futurism: call for proposal

For our 2013 edition, we’ll try to push one step further by inviting people to share their own experiences and skills around music technology. Based upon the DIY concept, we want people to interact, discover and share all together.


You present an idea you like, your experiences, projects of your own.
You can also come for open talks and assist to demos.


One presenter show to the audience a particular tool, instrument, concept. Practice is preferred to theory, with an important time for Q&A.

Workshop/Master Class
A group of people focusing on a product or rather on a global solution/concept. Attendees interact, share their knowledges and so progress.

Sharing Experience
Feedback from artists, partners, users on creative experiences.

Open Talk
Focused on a specific and important purpose or task but beginning without any formal agenda, beyond the overall purpose or theme.

Lightning Talk
Unlike other presentations, lightning talks last only a few minutes and several will usually be delivered in a single period by different speakers.

How long?
Between 5 and 60 minutes each.

These events will be held during the time of the festival, 27th to 30th June 2013.

Taking place outdoor, in the city park "Jardin Compans-Caffarelli".

How to participate?
Please register here.

Based on people experience and self-interacting, no financial retribution could be given to the candidates.
