France Rocks Summerfest

Jun 2-Jul 13, 2017

New York City music lovers will get a full dose of wide ranging French music again this summer as the music festival Francerocks Summerfest returns June 1-July 13, 2017.  

Co-presented by The Bureau Export, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, and France Rocks, in partnership with a network of major venues and institutions, the French music festival will showcase the expansive wealth of diverse musical talent coming out of France.

Over 30 artists spanning genres from indie pop, rock and electronic to jazz, and world music, will perform at over 20 venues ranging from Central Park SummerStage to the most intimate performance spaces throughout New York City. 

The festival is made possible thanks to the generous support of our sponsors Lacoste, Air France, and Institut français.
