New line-up and venue for Congés Annulés 2015
(MH) With venues closed for the summer, all is not lost for music fans in the Grand-Duchy as "Congés Annulés” promises a month-long programme of events.
The seventh edition of the festival marks a first as it will be held in the refurbished “Rotondes” venue, in Bonnevoie, which used to serve as railway roundhouses decades ago.
Playing with the French word “congés annuels” for annual leave, the “Congés annulés” (cancelled holidays) opens its doors when most venues remain closed for holiday, offering a varied programme for fans of alternative music.
Almost 60 musical acts will perform at this year's festival, among which are 19 international acts, 17 national bands as well as 17 DJ sets that can be listened to while enjoying a cold drink.
In addition to the musical line-up, this year's edition expands its programme, featuring a number of music documentaries, exhibitions as well as a theatre play titled “Schmock”. As part of the ”Congés Annulés”, Radio 100,7 will broadcast its show “Vun der Long op d'Zong” live from the site every Monday in August.
