Festival: Rock en Seine 2016

Details of the first names on the bill for this year's Rock en Seine festival have emerged, with some exciting names confirmed so far.

This year's event features the theme Let's Dance, organisers saying that it's time to warm up and prepare your best dance moves. Perhaps it's a nod to the late David Bowie, perhaps also a reminder of the city's party spirit that cannot ever be exxtinguished.

The three-day event at the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud near Paris is held at the end of August, attracting an audience of 120,000.

Iggy Pop, The Last Shadow Puppets, Massive Attack and Foals are at the top of the bill. Sigur Ros, Sum 41 and Bring me the Horizon are also there, as are CHVRCHES, Clutch, Wolfmother and Damien Marley.

Significantly, Eagles of Death Metal are playing in what will no doubt be an emotional appearance. Josh Homme of the Eagles of Death Metal collaborated with Iggy Pop on his recently released Post Pop Depression album.

Plenty of other acts on the bill, and more still to be added.

The festival features some top international acts, but there are also a well-curated collection of French acts. Cassius, Casseurs Flowters, Caravan Palace and Grand Blanc are among the home-grown talent

Rock en Seine 2016 is held on August 26, 27 and 28.
