Arty Farty Celebrates its 20th Birthday
Arty Farty – An Association for Electronic Music
Arty Farty is an association that wishes to eradicate the view that electronic music is lower than other forms of music such as classical music. When the association was established in 1999, Lyon was known as ‘the capital of anti-techno repression’. The association was created to promote techno music and its culture. Arty Farty created the famous Nuits Sonores music festival in 2003.
Arty Farty Comes to Lyon’s Auditorium
To celebrate its 20th birthday, Arty Farty will host a weekend of electronic music at Lyon’s auditorium. This recognises the work that the association has done. In Lyon’s hub of classical music, there will be a weekend of electronic music – not exactly the auditorium’s usual vibe.
A Hectic Weekend
