A Return to The Festival’s Origins

For this 15th edition of the festival, the organisers wanted to go back to the festival’s origins and reignite its true essence. That means creating a festival like to no other, with an eclectic mix of genres and immersive experience.

The line-up is more varied than ever, with all genres – from electronic and trance to reggae and rap. Spread across two days and three stages, there is certainly something for every music lover.

But it’s not just about the variety of genres. Démon d’Or also promises to plunge its festival-goers into a different universe, with its immersive backdrops, wrestling ring, and massages, to name a few.
