A unique musical programme
Originally electro-based, the Outdoormix festival has opened to a greater audience combining the initial electro base with World Music, Reggae, DUB, modern music and so on. This year, there will be something for everyone thanks to highly motivated, renowned international artists and local groups !
7 June: for the festival’s opening night, free rein will be given to the legendary Marseilles, alternative hip-hop label Chinese Man Records and its fantastic, charismatic artists: Baja Frequencia, Taiwan MC and Scratch Bandits Crew across styles ranging from club to electro, hip-hop to Cumbia. La Rif et Nos Men, winners of the Made in 05 contest, will be the opening act.
8 June: a colourful programme that includes Marseilles’ reggae raggamuffin artist, Don Maleko as opening act followed by Argentinian star, La Yegros, the flamboyant queen of nu-Cumbia. Then the French reggae and hip-hop group Raggasonic before rounding off the evening with Kanka and their lively dub steppa.
9 June: what a finale! LeChat, the Hautes-Alpes’ flagship hip-hop band will open the last night of the festival, followed by Lucie, Elsa and Juliette who form the L.E.J trio who are headlining the festival with their new show. Then gypsy Shantel, dubbed the ‘king of the Balkan dance floors’ and the eight musicians that form the Bucovina Club Orkestra, will bring the pit to life with their Balkan electro-rock. The female voice of Brazilian, Elisa do Brasil, will resound once again on the banks of Serre-Ponçon to conclude the evening, beating to the rhythm of electronic music, along with DJ Fly (world DMC champion) for a turntable battle.
