Based in Toulouse, Southern France, Les Siestes Électroniques is a summer meeting point for emerging artists from the field of music & digital culture.
Its ambitious line-up mainly focuses on electronic musicians and aims at a professional audience as well as the general public. The fact that its open air concerts are free of charge makes Les Siestes Électroniques a rare and precious occurance within the landscape of European festivals. Les Siestes offers an opportunity to experience the best of contemporary music though concerts, club nights, workshops and exhibitions.
“There’s you, there’s baguettes, and there’s dancing : it’s Les Siestes Électroniques, plugging in, turning on, and rocking out.” Pitchfork
“Anyone who’s ever been to Montreal’s Piknic Électronik knows that electronic music is best experienced outdoors and in daylight. Toulouse’s peerless Les Siestes Électroniques, now in its tenth year, perfects the formula with evening concerts performed before a laidback audience sprawled on a spongy lawn.” Earplug
“Small yet perfectly formed, Les Siestes Électroniques is the champion of the scaled-down festival experience. The action will switch day-to-day between different Toulouse locations, with a single stage giving a refined and focused feel to things. Oh, and did we mention half of the events are free ? Nice.”Resident Advisor
I had an absolutely wonderful time at Siestes Électroniques, from the moment i was met at the entrance to the moment i left! Such lovely people, with an obvious genuine love for music and the way it is presented. We had a really special day outside in the beautiful surroundings of Prairie des Filtres park in Toulouses! A beautiful town, beautiful people, and a beautiful festival!”Appleblim
