Picture this. It’s the start of summer. We are in Paris next to Le Bourget airport. There are four open air stages surrounding us playing the best in techno and house – Weather Festival is honestly a no-brainer.
In its fourth year, this haven of electronic music will take place at Parc des Expositions on 3-5 of June. Friday sees sets from RA’s numero uno, Dixon, as well as a live set from fellow Innervisions’ producer, Henrik Schwarz. Power couple Adam Beyer and Ida Engberg play their usual b2b while Seth Troxler and The Martinez Brothers trial their Tuskegee project.
With the incentive to fully go IN on Saturday, Weather have curated a huge 22 hours of music. Standouts include Japan’s DJ Nobu, Aquaplano aka Donato Dozzy and Nuel and a Hip Hop set from the Detroit heavyweight Robert Hood. We are also being treated to live sets from the eccentric Egyptian Lover, the bewitching Venetian Snares, and flying the flag for France, Point G and NSDOS.
Bringing the noise on Sunday, the Hessle Audio boys – namely Ben UFO, Pearson Sound and Pangaea – Actress treating us to his shadowy live feats, and of course, it wouldn’t be a techno showdown without Ricardo Villalobos on board.
This year also offers camping, just five minutes from the festival, at a small extra charge with hot showers and toilets on site. And for those who like to live the life of luxury, premium festihuts clock in at the very reasonable price of 70 euros each for three nights.
All in all, it’s going to be three days that you really don’t want to miss, and there’s still tickets left. Come on. We know you’re tempted.
