Here we go again! Paléo unveils the first names of the artists who will tread the Plaine de l’Asse from July 19 to 24, 2022. Discover the program here.

Patron of the festival, Daniel Rossellat promises to rediscover the collective thrill of Paléo and to experience a festival “as before”. And as much to say that the program promises moments of music and sharing at the height of a great Paleo edition. Sting, PNL, DJ Snake, Rag’n’Bone Man, OrelSan, Angèle, Stromae are some of the headliners of this 45th edition. It will be held from July 19 to 24 with Francis Cabrel, Maxime Le Forestier, Feu! Chatterton, Tryo, Romeo Elvis, Grand Corps Malade, Juliette Armanet, Suzane and Yseult. Paléo boss Daniel Rossellat did not hesitate to talk about a “paleomythic” edition. Definition with the interested party:

One thing is certain, the 2022 poster gives pride of place to French-speaking artists. In addition to those already mentioned, we can still name the artists PNL, Ninho, Maxime Le Forestier or Gaël Faye. Different universes which have in common the love of the French language. Jacques Monnier, co-founder and programmer of Paléo:

Rock, hip-hop, song, reggae, pop, soul or electro: the organizers are betting as usual on eclecticism and a unifying poster. A strong edition for this great reunion with the festival after two years of absence. And we don’t know everything. The programmers presented nearly 50 groups out of the 120 or so that will be expected next summer on the Asse plain. Starting to announce names is a strong signal of confidence in the future for Daniel Rossellat. Announcing the rest later is also opening up the field of possibilities according to Jacques Monnier:

The traditional Village du Monde will feature artists from West Africa, with Fatoumata Diawara as the headliner. New in 2022, a stage will be dedicated to electronic music with around twenty artists who will represent different currents.

The Plaine de l’Asse version 2022 will be a little different from what festival-goers know. A configuration already planned for 2020.

All of this organization is being done, let us remember, in the context of Covid-19 and after two cancellations. Sometimes a headache for programming. Jacques Monnier:

Not simple every day, indeed. This is what Dany Hassenstein confirms:

What will the Covid rules be? “No idea”, said the boss of the musical event, “but we will adapt” to the decisions of the authorities which will be in force next July. There is currently no plan B planned, he said.

The budget for this 45th edition, twice postponed, amounts to just over 25 million francs, Daniel Rossellat told Keystone-ATS. He also explains that after two difficult years – 2020 and 2021 – the deficit amounts to around 1 million francs, “covered by our reserves”. The boss of Paléo says he is 99% convinced that the festival will take place next summer.

Note that the subscriptions for the six days will go on sale tomorrow at 10 am on Daily tickets will be available from December 1 at noon. This will be a first sales quota before the spring one, which will be launched at the same time as the announcement of the rest of the programming.

Remember, on Sunday July 28, 2019, the famous fireworks symbolically closed the 44th edition of the Paléo Festival de Nyon.

A memorable edition, in the words of the organization of the Nyon festival. Which “will be remembered as the edition of all extremes, both in terms of weather and the variety of styles and concerts”. The organizers, but also the public, were far from imagining that it would remain so memorable … for three years!

We were delighted. Having enjoyed, without social distancing, without barrier gestures, without masks and without hydroalcoholic gel, the concerts of Twenty Øne Piløts, The Cure, -M-, Angèle, Lomepal, Soprano and all the others.

The euphoria will last even until the end of the year. On September 26, 2019, Paléo Festival Nyon announces the extension of its one-day festival to be able to welcome the superstar Celine Dion on the Big Stage! The 20,000 tickets for this extra day were sold in just 22 minutes.

If the festivals were not yet formally prohibited due to the Sars-Cov-2 pandemic. The climate of uncertainty hanging over the world of culture prevents Paléo Festival from imagining organizing its 45th edition. Reluctantly, on April 16, 2020, the press release was sent to the press. The Plaine de l’Asse will not resonate this summer. The organization makes an appointment with the public a year later, to find there “a crazy program and a beautifully redeveloped field with new sets and new stages”. A carefully prepared redevelopment for a few months due to the work planned for the installation of the Nyon-St-Cergue train depot.

We discover a new term. “Covid-compatible».

Impossible for the festival to achieve its 45th edition. The organization then decides to create the 45th Parallel, a new unprecedented musical event, Covid-compatible, whose capacity and size will be reduced and the duration extended. Party safely.

: Paleo is studying three options for next summer

This was without taking into account the financial security which, despite the efforts made, prevents the serenity of this new half-edition. Courageous, but not reckless, the festival throws in the towel. The only solution to ensure the public a return in 2022.

: Paleo gives up its 45th Parallel

The 45th edition seems to finally come true. If Celine Dion, for agenda reasons, will not be in Nyon until 2023, Stromae has announced her presence for the great return of the Vaudois festival. The Belgian composer will certainly perform his latest single “Santé” and some other nuggets expected in an upcoming album.
