Vive La France! 2012 presents…
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.
As a finale to the festival, we are delighted to announce an exclusive late night screening of the celebrated French classic, ‘Amelie’. Often described as the masterwork of renowned director Jean- Pierre Jeunet (Delicatessen, The City Of Lost Children et al), Amelie is one of the most loved French films of all time, and features an iconic performance from Audrey Tautou as the titular dreamer.
Prior to the screening, Inimitable Nouvelle Vague vocalist Mélanie Pain will be making her return to the festival with an exclusive late night performance. This is a unique opportunity to catch Mélanie’s beautiful folk-chanson compositions in the confines of Britain’s oldest purpose-built cinema, a perfect match that you won’t want to miss.
