Every year, We Love Green invites wild and exciting artists who draw the music of our time. An eclectic program that crosses the bridges between indie and electro. A French scene does not lack lights (Christine & The Queens, Camille, Juliette Armanet, Angèle…) and a window on the new pop rock guard. But above all, a great desire for diversity in all forms of hip-hop: from the first festival of PNL to the coronation of Action Bronson, Migos & Tyler The Creator, and incredible performances of the new jewels Anderson .Paak, Damso, IAMDDB or Moha La Squale.
The music programming flourishes on two large stages: those of La Prairie, solar, open to the outside, feet in the grass, the head in the stars … and the scene of La Clairère, a half-marquee, like a bubble, ideal for meticulous stage design, resting as much on the light as the video to welcome the most innovative artists, and it becomes a real dive into their universe. And the future of current music, its most promising newcomers give themselves appointment under the big tent of the Lalaland. A panel of Live discoveries during the day before switching to a club version with the dancefloor masters.
For “We Love Green” environmental issues lies at the heart. When creating and conceiving the plan for such an ephemeral event, they start from scratch, asking the key question: “What resources do we have to hand, and what can we make with them?” Via the festivities of We Love Green, the aim is to raise the public’s awareness of certain issues, they’re hoping to have an impact that changes peoples’ habits, and be part of a necessary movement towards change that everyone can take part in. Via music, the festival can spread economical, social and solidarity values – values that are music to your ears!
Concerts & Dj Sets
4 stages in the middle of the woods: The Prairie open-air stage (main stage), feet on the grass, head under the sun, The Clairière tent (immersive live stage), The Canopé for the new generation of talents, and The Lalaland Club, entirely designed for the dancefloor addicts !
The Think Tank is an ideas lab located right in the heart of the festival. Its aim is to promote environmental innovation and encourage the exchange of ideas, as well as raising awareness of the biggest ecological issues around, to help us better understand our ever-changing world. And in order to achieve this, we hand the floor over to change makers such as iconoclastic thinkers, scientists, activists, artists, sociologists and other committed leading figures who will be leading round tables, conferences and even screenings.
Every year, We Love Green opens its doors for the Residence Workshop, inviting the next generation of recently qualified designers and design students to apply. Not only do we finance all production costs and the ownership of the work remains with the artists, but the festival also advises and provides guidance to the designers, helping them source recycled materials for their projects that will decorate the festival. We Love Green has set up a jury made up of prominent professionals and industry insiders from the art, design, and scenography worlds. Their task is to select the various projects and support the winners throughout the whole creative process.
Screened in the tents in the Think Tank field, you’ll find films and documentaries that make you think. Travel the planet through the eyes of various international directors and get a different insight into the world around you.
The Startup Incubator brings together pioneering organisations and businesses from different areas such as green tech, circular economy, sustainable food production and agriculture, ethical fashion and design… On the eve of COP24 and its environmental and social challenges, the aim of this space is to raise awareness and allow new changemakers to be heard – from innovative ideas and how to consume differently, to encouraging collaboration and ways to help one another.
