The 40th edition of Paléo Festival Nyon, enriched by an additional day was marked by waves of positive vibes and unforgettable concerts, characterised by legends, rich discoveries and a party atmosphere. After a grand opening with the generous show by Robbie Williams, this 40th edition will assuredly remain engraved in our memories. From Sting to Véronique Sanson or Johnny Hallyday and Christine and the Queens, both legendary stars and new discoveries fulfilled all their promises. The timeless class of Joan Baez, an inspired Robert Plant and the authenticity of Patti Smith lived up to the expectations of festivalgoers who came in massive numbers to acclaim them. The melodic rock of The Script and the classy blues of Gary Clark Jr. cast a spell over the Asse plain, unanimously seduced by the incisive humour of the show by 120 Secondes, who took the mickey out of Paléo in no mean style.

The other stages served as a backdrop to the solar performances of Faada Freddy and Nneka and were illuminated by Passenger and The Dø, who confirmed all the depth and range of their talent. In the revelations department, the widely diverse universes of Feu! Chatterton, Husbands, Bigflo & Oli and Shake Shake Go were unanimously acclaimed. Swiss know-how was not overlooked, with Puts Marie and Rootwoords enthralling their audiences, whilst La Forêt and Flexfab both dazzled with their very efficient electro.

The Village du Monde set off on a voyage of discovery to the Far East with the whimsical Pascals, the post-punk of Jambinai and the airy electro of AM444. On the fringes of the concerts, the Ruche and its “plurality of singular projects” played host to a series of hypnotic shows that delighted fans of street theatre. At the Quartier des Alpes, the public were able to appreciate the sculptures created specially by those metallic lace makers of Monic la Mouche and discover the fascinating levitations of Etienne Krähenbühl. Numerous visitors also explored the HES-SO’s astonishing Air Factory installation and the exhibition Un autre regard, mounted in partnership with the Musée de l’Elysée.
