We Love Green: a beautiful music festival in the heart of Paris


Last month I was in one of the most beautiful festivals I've ever been to (of course, after my beloved Appletree Garden Festival, but very close to it): We Love Green! We Love Green is a festival that takes place in an exceptional setting, in the middle of the forests of Bois de Vincennes in Paris and with a special care in its decoration and respect for the environment.

El mes pasado estuve en uno de los festivales más bonitos que he estado (por supuesto, por detrás de mi querido Appletree Garden Festival, pero rozándole los talones): We Love Green! We Love Green es un festival que se desarrolla en un entorno excepcional, en medio de los bosques de Bois de Vincennes en París y que cuenta con un especial cuidado en su decoración y en el respeto por el medio ambiente.





As ever, the bins were recyclable, the stages built from 100% natural material and the site dotted with the stands of tree-hugging NGOs, while the summery location was amazingly decorated with all kind of art constructions made to protect you from the sun and to delight your eyes. The festival was full of organic food and wine stalls, and kids are also catered with a range of games and workshops. 

Como siempre, los contenedores eran reciclables, los escenarios construidos a partir de material 100% natural y el recinto estaba salpicado de stands de ONG protectoras del medio ambiente. El festival estaba asombrosamente decorado con todo tipo de construcciones de arte hechas para proteger del sol y para deleitar la vista. We Love Green estaba lleno de comida orgánica y puestos de vino, y los niños también tenían una gran variedad de juegos y talleres.





The programme’s gone from strength to strength since the inaugural festival five years ago, and the 2017 edition was upwards still with headliners such as Nicolas Jaar, Solange, Benjamin Clementine, and Moderat taking center stage over the two-day festival.  Electro fans certainly weren't left out, with DJ Jon Hopkins, Maceo Plex and Canadian singer/songwriter Jessy Lanza present. There were also many local bands I didn't know such as Agar Agar and new up-coming bands such as Parcels.

El cartel se ha ido fortaleciendo desde su inauguración hace cinco años, y la edición de 2017 ha sido una de las mejores con protagonistas como Nicolas Jaar, Solange, Benjamin Clementine o Moderat durante los dos días de festival. Los fans de la electrónica también pudieron disfrutar con  DJ Jon Hopkins, Maceo Plex y la cantante y compositora canadiense Jessy Lanza. Había también muchas bandas locales que no conocía como Agar Agar y nuevas bandas emergentes como Parcels.







A world-leader amongst environmentally-friendly festivals, We Love Green took place on June 10th - 11th, 2017 with its winning formula: combination of cutting edge music line up with a series of talks, screenings & debates. Without a doubt, a totally recommendable festival to which I hope to return next year.

We Love Green es líder mundial entre los festivales respetuosos con el medio ambiente. El festival tuvo lugar  del 10 al 11 de junio de 2017 con su fórmula ganadora: combinar música de vanguardia con una serie de charlas, proyecciones y debates. Sin duda, un festival totalmente recomendable al que espero volver el año que viene.










Happy week!
Feliz semana!

  5. I love a festival with more than just a music message. The environment has become synonymous with this scene and it's fantastic that it has. You must try to meet me at WOMADelaide one year, it's on in March and runs for 4 days. It's my favourite so far. :-)
