This stunning historic site features a beautiful panoramic view of Lyon. An exciting programme has been planned for this unique setting, with strict health safety rules to ensure that this highly anticipated 2021 edition is both safe and fun for all visitors!

A 75th anniversary deserves to be celebrated! And the Nuits de Fourvière Festival has every intention of making this comeback edition a great success after a difficult year. 
This 2021 edition will feature a few changes: nearly all the events will take place at the historic theatre. The Lacroix-Laval Circus will not be featured this year, there will be few off-site events, and the number of attendees will be limited.

But one thing is certain: the fun and excitement will be the same as ever! 

This year's programme :

  • 3 dance performances in partnership with the Biennial of Dance, including the opening performance.
  • Concerts just the way we like them, featuring both big-name acts (Alain Souchon, Jane Birkin, Louis Chedid, Stéphane Eicher, and Catherine Ringer) and up-and-coming stars (Camille, Suzane, and more), alongside several famous Lyon-based artists such as Woodkid, Benjamin Biolay, and Pomme.  
    There will also be jazz, soul, world music, pop, electro, and rock concerts featuring Rone (La Horde), Asaf Avidan & Band, Selah Sue, Mélodie Gardot, Mogwai, and more.
  • A momentous classical music concert: The ONL will perform Beethoven’s 9th in a large ensemble, with soloists and choir, conducted by Ben Glassberg. 
  • Theatre, circus, and more.
  • A night of Italian jazz

The Nuits de Fourvière Festival is back!
