Tame Impala, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Stromae & more for Rock en Seine 2022

Let’s go ! In 2022, Rock en Seine is back for an XL edition!

Paris’s festival is back! Rock en Seine returns in 2022 with its biggest line up yet. After two years away from the festival’s iconic Parc de Saint-Cloud main stage, Rock en Seine is back in full force with an amazing 18th edition on 25th – 28th August 2022, with not three, but four huge days of music. Next summer will see the festival bigger and better than ever, keeping all the best bits of Rock en Seine and celebrating everything that the incredible music scene has to offer.

Organisers are determined to make up for lost time this year and give music fans the perfect weekend break in August. On the agenda: world exclusives, the ultimate party atmosphere, brilliant live shows from rockstars and newcomers alike, and the incredible energy of the crowd back together at last.

Returning in 2022 with a new version of Rock en Seine, after a two-year pause, is exhilarating. We are very proud to be announcing such tremendous talent, and look forward to the exclusive surprises to come for future announcements. More than ever, we aim to be one of the ultimate rendezvous spots for all French and European live music fans.
