Rap makes a rousing entry to the festival: a few hours before MC Solaar's first Nyon appearance, a freak wind storm bears down on the Paléo site. With the Chapiteau out of action, Claude MC moves to the Club Tent which hosts one of the biggest audiences in its history. The 1992 edition has a formidable parade of stars and discoveries - Brian Adams, Jethro Tull, Youssou N'Dour, Keziah Jones, Zap Mama - and is accompanied by 115,000 members of the public.
