Each year, the biggest stars unassumingly grace the two stages of the ancient theatres with their presence. 

Following in the footsteps of the likes of M, Vanessa Paradis and Tears For Fears, we look forward to welcoming the talented frontman of Radiohead, Thom Yorke. To open the festival, Zoo Nation – The Kate Prince Compagnie will be presenting Message in A Bottle, a choreographed show that pays tribute to the songs of Sting.

Nuits de Fourvière would not be the same without the famous “throwing of the cushions”! To take part in this fine tradition, make sure you book your tickets as of Friday the 13th of March 2020! Let the good times roll!

Reservation only by email and on the website
