OohLaLa! festival in London

I've been meaning to write about the OohLaLa! festival that's being held in London  in October, so the
release of a promotional video for the event give me the perfect excuse.

For three days, October 21-24, some of France's top acts take to the stage at the Village Underground.

It's a great line up of contemporary French acts, many of which should be familiar to readers of this blog.

The first night sees Fauve, Petit Fantôme and Moodoïd.

The second night has Dominique A, Rover and Mélissa Laveux, and the final night has Lescop, Christine and the Queens and Tomorrow's World.

There are also dj sets from Laetitia Sadier, The Line of Best Fit and The Quietus, and appearances at the Rough Trade shop by artists appearing at the event.

If you're in the London area, the chance to catch so many quality French acts at one is one not to be missed.

Hopefully the attention that the likes of Phoenix and Daft Punk have been getting will spread to these acts, and ideally we'll see more of them playing at this side of the channel before too long.

I mentioned that I've featured some of these acts before in the blog, and I'll certainly feature them again before the gigs take place.
