This event has been and gone.
La Magnifique Society is a diverse music and arts festival in Reims, France. Unafraid to explore all musical avenues, the festival's lineup spans smooth jazz, minimal techno, low-fi indie, punk, hip-hop, pop and more, across three days and three stages.
After making its debut in the spring of 2017, the successor of Elektricity Festival – which was formerly held in the same location – returns once more to build upon the impressive foundations laid by the very first edition.
Prior to the musical festivities in the Parc de Champagne, the festival also hosts a three day artistic program aimed at showcasing experimental and avant-garde installations, in a number of venues across the city.

Cheeky and charismatic four-piece from Scotland, pedalling angular, arty and knowing indie-pop. In 2004 they won the hearts of the music press and public alike - their best-selling, eponymously-named debut album scooping the much-coverted Mercury Music Prize. With choppy, catchy hooks, bohemian tongue-in-cheek lyrics and a fantastic live show, they're a breath of fresh air into the world of the beautiful indie people.
