On September 13, 2014 the Techno Parade comes to Paris, bringing with it electro beats and an exciting atmosphere. This represents the 16th edition of the event, which usually attracts several hundred thousand people. As a result, guests of the Hôtel Louvre Marsollier can dance in the street with masses of other music fans during their stay in Paris.
Every summer, lovers of techno gather in Paris in order to listen to music blasted from trucks parading down the street. When the clock strikes noon, the Place de la Nation (located between the 11th and 12th arrondissements of the city) will be transformed into a giant dance floor.
The French group Dirtyphonics — which fuses dubstep, drum ‘n’ bass, elecro and rock — will preside over this year’s festivities. The theme of the 2014 Paris Techno Parade is ‘freedom and diversity.’ Another particularity of the parade this year is the participation of three Vietnamese electro artists: DJ Jin, Slo-Lo and DJ Jase. Three Franco-Vietnamese artists, Tha Trickaz, DJ Yellow and Nick V., will also be involved. Their participation has been solicited in honor of the France-Vietnam Year that the two countries are currently celebrating.
The celebration continues from September 24 to September 28, 2014 during the Paris Electronic Week. With events including live performances, artist encounters and parties, Paris Electronic Week ensures that the fun won’t stop in the City of Light. The events conclude with a large music market in the 19th arrondissement.
On September 18th, the Centre Pompidou will even offer its contribution with the exhibition of an original work by Bernard Szajner entitled ‘Evolution.’ Visitors can therefore experience exciting art and music during all of the techno activities in Paris.
