On Thursday June 30, 2022, Eurockéennes will open the doors to their 32nd edition. Just writing it makes you shiver. After two cancellations due to Covid-19, the festival returns with an extended edition of 4 days, a program of 54 artists, free camping and the ambition to bring together young people. The party is back!
Let’s get rid of the annoying subject right away: yes, the wait will have been long before this announcement of the Eurockéennes 2022 program. Too long. To tell the truth, the events did not really leave us the choice. At the beginning of December, faced with a new peak in the epidemic, we had indeed preferred to wait for a more favorable horizon before revealing the menu for the next edition. Deal. Following the encouraging government announcements of the last few days, the time has come to rethink the party and therefore present the poster for the next festival.
One thing is certain: the winter patience of festival-goers and Eurocks friends (institutions, patrons, partners, etc.) will be rewarded. A rich, eclectic and exhilarating program awaits regulars and first-time festival-goers this summer. In total, 54 artists – representing 15 nationalities – will tread the 4 stages of the festival. Among them: planetary headliners (MUSE, NICK CAVE & THE BAD SEEDS, FOALS, SIMPLE MINDS, STROMAE, PAUL KALKBRENNER…), sure values of the French-speaking scene (CLARA LUCIANI, FEU! CHATTERTON, IZIA, LAST TRAIN…) , hip-hop big names (SCH, KAARIS & KALASH CRIMINEL…), figures of a new teeming and committed African scene (STAR FEMININE BAND, ELOW’N, ARKA’N ASRAFOKOR…), not to mention the great favorites of the festival team (BLACK PUMAS, GIRL IN RED, SQUID, WET LEG, LA FÈVE…). Expect to be surprised. In 2022, more than 80% of artists will perform at the Eurockéennes for the first time.
Another first: the Eurotronik electro night will be organized on Saturday evening, simultaneously on the 4 Eurocks stages. All festival-goers will have midnight permission to enjoy an original program around electronic music, party – again – all night long and rediscover the wonderful Malsaucy peninsula in its most beautiful nocturnal assets. A natural jewel, the protected site of the Eurockéennes will be redesigned for this 2022 edition. Without revealing all our surprises, know that the expansion of the – so popular – seaside area of the Beach or the creation of a new space is already planned. dedicated to culinary experiments. Something to celebrate this marvelous site in the Territoire de Belfort. Creator of the festival, our department is also celebrating its centenary in this year of reunion with the Eurockéennes. Nice symbol. An associative and responsible festival.
