Hyperweekend, Radio France's first ever contemporary music festival

Radio France is set to hold Hyperweekend Festival, its first ever contemporary music festival from 21st to 23rd January 2022. RATP is a proud partner of this event, which will feature more than 30 concerts and over 60 artists in all Maison de la Radio et de la Musique’s the iconic venues.

After renaming its headquarters "Maison de la Radio et de la Musique" last June, Radio France is once again reaffirming its long-standing commitment to music and, more broadly, to culture. It is doing so by creating Hyperweekend, its first ever contemporary music festival, which will be dedicated primarily to French music and new talent. From 21st to 23rd January 2022 more than sixty artists, ranging from big names to emerging talents, will perform at the first Hyperweekend Festival.
The festival line-up will feature original performances and a variety of musical styles, including: 

  • An extraordinary "Pop Symphonique" concert by Clara Luciani with the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra;

  • A performance by Kiddy Smile with a vocal ensemble of 30 singers inspired by house music classics; 

  • A Love on the Beat etc. performance by Alex Beaupain accompanied by guests;

  • The repertoire of Dominique A who is celebrating the 30th anniversary of his legendary first album "La fossette" which will be reinterpreted by a dozen young generation Z artists;

  • Four concerts per evening at Maison de la Radio et de la Musique's Studio 104, including Superpoze, November Ultra, Iliona, Yndi, Hubert Lenoir, among others. 
     

From the prestigious Studio 104 to the Auditorium, the Agora, the Galerie Seine, the parking lot, the 22nd floor of the Tower: all Maison de la Radio et de la Musique’s iconic venues will resonate to the sound of the festival, offering the audience an unforgettable experience. Hyperweekend is putting on an array of events to satisfy everyone's taste: performances, masterclasses, catering, DJ sets and exclusive productions that only Radio France can offer, with the participation of its musical groups.

A l’occasion du festival, la Maison de la Radio et de la Musique propose une exposition immersive et auditive dans les home studios de BoomBass, des années 1980 à 2000. BoomBass nous emmène dans une visite audio-guidée à la découverte de ses home studios, de son enfance à la formation du duo de musique house Cassius. Le home studio, c’est un studio d’enregistrement à domicile. Dans les années 80, la miniaturisation des appareils permet aux musiciens, moyennant quelques centaines de francs, d’installer chez eux de quoi composer et s’enregistrer. Ce sont les prémices du do it yourself, l’idée de tout faire soi-même. Une valeur extrêmement chère au Hip-Hop naissant. Le home studio révolutionne la manière de fabriquer la musique et la démocratise.
Du 20 au 26 janvier 2022, l’exposition se prolongera dans la station Pigalle, sur les quais de la ligne 2 avec un contenu audio immersif conçu spécialement pour la station, disponible via QR codes : vous pourrez ainsi découvrir le Pigalle de BoomBass au coeur même de la station de métro.
