As part of the Europe-wide festival cooperation We Are Europe, the Elevate Festival has helped to shape the artistic and discursive programme of the Nuits Sonores/European Lab Festival in Lyon. Also on board: The Reworks Festival from Thessaloniki.

Nuits Sonores

Nuits Sonores is a French festival entirely dedicated to electronic, independent, visual and digital cultures where music, design, graphic arts and architecture are intimately connected. Each year, the festival takes over about 40 locations across the city. Over 250 locations were used and redesigned including art galleries, industrial wastelands, rooftops and swimming pools. This encourages the public to wander and discover the festival on foot, by bike or by public transport. Nuits sonores aims to be the decoder for past, present and future innovative cultures. This unique and curious mind-set brings together headliners and new discoveries, popular music and niche music from local, national and international scenes. For 16 years, the festival has transformed the city of Lyon into a place of freedom for five days and five nights, a giant playground for those who love and share this culture and spirit of quality music, curiosity and encounters.

Elevate presents the following artists as part of the cooperation:

Jon Hopkins on Wednesday 29.05.2019

European Lab Camp

Created in 2011 with the European Union's support, the European Lab is a European platform for exchanges and thought which gives a voice to new European generations in culture, creation, innovation, new media and entrepreneurship. The capacity of these young generations is more important than ever. The opportunity to make them heard accelerates a widely-shared feeling of our ever-changing world in the cultural sector (distribution, knowledge sharing, education, training, information circulation). These themes are discussed throughout the whole year in all of Europe by the European Lab, during the annual forum in Lyon and at the European Lab sessions that take place regularly across Europe in collaboration with other platforms, networks and festivals.

Elevate has contributed to the following sessions of the European Lab Camp 2019:

Workshop: Refugee of Disinformation: Welcome! - Friday 31.05.2019

Mobilisation 3.0 : Which Story-Telling for today’s Challenges? - Friday 31.05.2019
