Paris hosts the Pitchfork Music Festival from today, with three nights of well-curated acts playing at the Grande halle de la Villette.
Today sees Beach House, Godspeed you! Black Emperor and Ariel Pink among the acts performing.
Friday sees Four Tet, Thom Yorke - Tomorrow's Modern Boxes, Kurt Vile and Battles take to the stage.
On Saturday Father John Misty, Hinds, Spiritualized, Hudson Mohawke and Laurent Garner are on the bill.
There are also after party events on the 29th and 30th.
It's the kind of event that allows the French audience to experience the kind of US bands who although critically acclaimed would struggle to get the kind of crowd that would make a show in France economically viable.
