Because the temperatures are cooling and the greyness, rain and snow are invading everyday life, Les Plages Électroniques are unveiling part of their 2023 programming to offer a ray of sunshine.
Les Plages Électroniques runs from August 4th to 6th 2023 on the beach at the foot of the Palais des Festivals in Cannes with the first names of a line-up that promises to be colossal, including DJ Snake, Armin Van Buuren, Lomepal, Pedro Winter pres. Ed Banger XX, Mind Against, Sam Paganini, Ofenbach, The Blessed Madonna, Oden & Fatzo (live), Marina Trench and more.
One of the most esteemed French artists in the world returns for the 3rd time to Les Plages Électroniques. DJ Snake will offer festival-goers an unprecedented show on the Main Stage, alongside world heavyweight Armin Van Buuren. On the rap side, double-platinum French artist Lomepal will perform in the wake of his latest album Mauvais Ordre. The evocative flow of Belgian rapper Hamza also takes centre stage, following his hit of summer 2022, ‘Fade Up’.
Once again, Les Plages Électroniques make up one of the most varied line-ups that can be found in France, including multi-instrumental internet sensation Mezerg, The Blessed Madonna and her top shelf house and techno selections, Bellaire and his sweet blend of house and disco, and Pedro Winter who will be ringing in the 20th anniversary of the legendary Ed Banger label.
With this first salvo of artists, Les Plages Électroniques again offers great headliners, cutting-edge artists, French rap stars, electronic music titans, live and DJ sets, all in the unique setting of the Palais des Festival in Cannes.
“We are going to enlarge the space where the festival is located by adding a new outdoor stage to be able to welcome even more festival-goers in the best possible conditions. We are also working on setting up a new cool space indoors to be able to enjoy the event without suffering from the high heat. With the desire to also encourage the younger generations of artists, we are renewing the Riffx competition to select an emerging talent who will play during the 2023 edition of Les Plages Électroniques. As you will have understood, this 2023 edition will take up all the ingredients that make the festival a success, but by taking everything a notch higher!” say Matthieu Corosine and Benoit Géli, founders of Les Plages Électroniques.
