Editorial: June 2016

I know, it's been quiet round here apparently. Not too many updates over the past few weeks, but these things happen. This blog isn't my day job, and there's been a lot of stuff going on to occupy my time outwith then recently.

While the number of posts may have been *ahem* 'more selective', there's been a huge number of visitors, with another record month in terms of traffic. Thanks for visiting, and hope you come again soon.

That being said, I'm hoping this month to get things back on track and quickly. There's plenty going on over the next few weeks, with the summer festival season getting into full swing. With events from We Love Green in Paris over the weekend to massive events like Hellfest and Glastonbury some of the biggest events of the summer.

Also worth remembering that the fete de la musique at the end of the month sees music on the streets of towns across France, from large scale events to community gatherings, A-listers to buskers in an annual performance that puts music back in the heart of the country's cultural landscape.

I'll be keeping an eye on these and other events throughout the month.

Meanwile, the schedule of French music releases continues as well as French acts touring in the UK. Selah Sue plays London on June 8 and M83 have got shows in the UK, and the likes of Christine and the Queens and Caravan Palace are playing at Glastonbury, Air and Rone also make British festival appearances this month.

As always, I can be contacted on johnkilbrideAThotmailDOTcom, with the appropriate punctuation where you'd expect it to be. I'm always pleased to hear from record companies, PR companies and promoters, so do get in touch.

The blog is also on Twitter as @viveleroq or you can find me at @karnag

If you're around Facebook, remember to like the French Music Podcast UK page, where you can get regular updates with both fresh and vintage French music.

Thanks as always to the French Music Office in London and to the Institut francais in London for their help and encouragement.

Merci et à bientôt

John K
