Les Nuits de Fourviere
The Fourvière festival has been gracing the stage of Lyon’s open-air Roman ampitheatre for over half a century. For two months each summer, this unique venue overlooking the city plays host to some memorable performances.
The programme includes a series of one-off concerts from internationally recognised musicians and singers, as well as shows and concerts from renowned artists in the world of theatre, dance and classical music.
Here is a list of some of the artists that have performed at Fourviere over the last few years:
Music - David Bowie, Jamiroquai, Blur, Oasis, Phil Collins, Iggy Pop, PJ Harvey, Elvis Costello
The programme usually becomes available from sometime in March.
