The Basics

6-13 May 2018
Lyon, France

Nuits Sonores is an electronic music festival in Lyon, France. With a lineup firmly rooted in the underground, the festival showcases house, techno and boundary pushing experimental electronica across three days and four nights.

As well as performances from both internationally celebrated artists and emerging talents, the festival also welcomes three established names to curate the daytime festivities. Last year the curators were Nina Kraviz, Jon Hopkins and The Black Madonna and the likes of Laurent Garnier, Ben Klock and Seth Troxler have take on the duty in the past.

As the sun goes down on the specially curated daytime shows, the night makes way for more festivities, with parties spread across the city's clubs, music venues, warehouses and other transformed spaces.
