Between the 26th – 28th January 2012, Melting Vinyl, in association with Bureau Export, welcomes to Brighton an impressive collection of French artists and labels for the fourth annual Vive la France! Festival. Making its home in the bohemian and cosmopolitan North Laines, four venues will provide outlets for an eclectic mix of explosive Electro-Pop, enchanting Chanson, ever popular performances from local French artists under the ‘French Connection’ banner as well as a hearty dose of French-infused World Music, Hip Hop, and Cinema; all guaranteed to impress both connoisseurs and newcomers to the scene.

We are also delighted announce that Vive La France! 2012 will be brought to you in association with 5 cultural taste-makers: The Line of Best Fit, French Radio London, Les Inrockuptibles, Plateau & Mange Tout.
