Idyllic in both sight and sound
Papillons de Nuit ('Butterflies of the Night) is a multi-genre festival that draws a host of major international talent to the quaint town of Saint-Laurent-de-Cuves in Normandy, France.
Despite being a small and peaceful town for most of the year, it is transformed annually into a surprisingly gargantuan venue for music sensations from across the globe. The idyllic architecture takes a subtle back seat to the crowds and headliners who flourish on the nearby open air stages.
Previous acts include the likes of David Guetta, Iggy Pop, Foals, Placebo, L.E.J, Indochin, Louise Attaque, Michel Polnareff and Nekfeu.
Each year over 70,000 descend onto this small town in Normandy, France. Naturally idyllic, it lives and breathes for the festival.
