Lyon international exciting festivals

Lyon has some exciting festivals that draw people from all over the world.
Les Nuits Sonores every May is becoming a reference in the electronic music scene and Quai du Polar at the end of March is an internationally recognised fun festival of crime fiction in print and film.
La Fete des Lumières draws perhaps the biggest crowds when Lyon becomes a spectacular Festival of lights for 3 days every year around the 8th of December and there are the wonderful biennial festivals of Dance and Contemporary Art which take place in the Autumn.
