The best in music, fashion and art hosted beneath the sizzling summer sun in Paris – what could be better than that? Circle your calendars, because this is exactly what the trendy We Love Green festival is about.
Kicking off the Parisian summer with a bang, the 2016 edition will take place on June 4th and 5th. Enjoy a weekend in the countryside without actually having to leave the city as this year’s 100% extraordinaire event will be held inside the beautiful Bois de Vincennes. Boasting an eclectic concert program and an eco-friendly philosophy, this festival gives you more than one opportunity to satisfy your thirst for music, arts, fashion, food and best of all fun!
At the heart of it all lays the essential love for nature and music. Solar and wind powered stages are nuzzled between tall, flourishing trees. No typical festival food here either! Food stands offer organic delights and refreshing natural drinks that will keep your spirit high and make you dance away all day and night to the best of what today's music scene has to offer.
With so much to do already, it can be easy to forget the plethora of big name musicians – the industry's true iconoclasts – to run around and see. The festival has hosted household names including London Grammar, Christine and The Queens, Lorde, Ratatat, James Blake, Cat Power, Metronomy, Nicolas Jarr, Django Django. This year’s line-up so far includes British singer PJ Harvey, LCD Soundsytem making their long awaited return to France, American Dj Diplo, French rap group PNL and electro-pop English band Hot Chip, among other exciting and renowned artists.
The fashion scene at We Love Green is also 100% at the top of its game. Remember that this festival takes place in Paris, one of, if not the most, fashion conscious cities in the world, so alongside the extraordinary music, eateries, arts and crafts, you will be able to feast your eyes on some of the most stylish festival looks. Typical bohemian festival style infused with that effortlessly cool Parisian chic means spritzed up basics, a jazzy hat and that all important killer pair of shades. And if you’re lucky enough – which we are sure you are – you might even get yourself style snapped for the street-style section of fashion glossies. We Love Green…We Love You!
