Paléo celebrates music in Nyon on June 15
On Saturday 15th June, just at the start of the summer solstice, the town of Nyon will see itself flooded once again by a host of musicians celebrating the Fête de la Musique. Paléo will again be participating this year, providing a covered stage in Rive, inviting Swiss artists that played at the Festival 2012 or wil play there in 2013.
What's going on?
The Rebels Of Tijuana > 7.30 p.m.
The Rebels Of Tijuana make bad boys’ music. Music that bad boys loved in the sixties, in the days when anyone wearing a suede jacket and blue jeans was treated as a delinquent. If this band of rebels from Annemasse and Geneva were to name their spiritual godfather, both in terms of music and lyrics, it would certainly be Jacques Dutronc.
Licia Chery (duo version) > 9 p.m.
Author, composer, singer, this young woman born in Switzerland to Haitian parents impresses and fascinates by her autonomy and her determination. Inspired by a multitude of influences, Licia Chery has nourished a profound admiration for the great names of soul and the great ladies of jazz, but also for Haitian music.
7 Dollar Taxi > 10.30 p.m.
7 Dollar Taxi, a band from Lucerne, are worthy heirs to a musical tradition which, at the turn of the century, decided to plug their guitars back in. Inspired by English groups such as Babyshambles and Maxïmo Park, these four vigorous young men, brought up on a diet of gingerbread and spice biscuits, have no reason to envy their elders.
|Cogip Sound System (Paléo homeDJs) > 11.45 p.m.|
To counter loneliness and the boredom of office work, the COGIP and its dj collaborators, exclusively for the Fête de la Musique, will offer a dancing collection of titles, all of course according to the theme "Ties, moustaches, and briefs". On show, a "really very interesting" playlist composed of hits from rock, electro and Funk, all with a disco orientation.
Please note: Licia Chery is also on the Festival line-up this summer.
Anything to eat and drink?
You bet! You will be able to take sustenance at one of the three stalls situated on the site: the famous M. Bibinet and his curries (tropical Thai stall), the no less renowned Mannecke Kris and their splendid waffles, as well as a Magret Sandwich stall run by a team from Paléo’s Food & Drink department. Two bars will also be on hand with a selection of soft drinks, beers, wines and cocktails in order to quench your thirst. Cheers!
The Paléo zone won’t be the only event at this year’s Fête de la Musique in Nyon. You can take advantage of a multitude of other concerts and entertainment all over the town. All the info on the web at www.nyonmusique.ch.
