Preview: Sunday at We Love Green, Paris (1/6/14)


The ‘We Love Green’ festival is set in the gorgeous Parc de Bagatelle in near central Paris. Having only run for 2 years previously, the festival is relatively new to the French live music scene. This year, the Sunday date of the festival is headlined by Lorde and Foals, undoubtedly the best and most well known set list this festival has ever seen, no doubt boosting the fame of this little known event.

Lorde has become an instant legend throughout the music scene, proving fame can be overnight. Within a year she has sky rocketed to fame, winning multiple music awards for her debut album Pure Heroine, which topped charts across the world and gained critical appraisal from a range of music magazines. At just 17 years old, the sensational pop star is well on her way to entering the halls of legendary fame.

Foals are a hugely successful British indie band, with three album releases, multiple music awards and a legion of dedicated fans, recently packing out both Royal Albert Hall and Alexandra Palace. Their touring schedule has been constant over the past year, since the release of Holy FireBut as one of their last performances before they begin work on their fourth album, it will be one to remember.

Earl Sweatshirt is a member of the internet hip-hop phenomenon Odd Future (OFWGKTA). His debut studio album, Doris, was released in mid 2013, recieving critical acclaim from all over the internet and through much mainstream music journalism. At a mere 20 years old, this Los Angeles based rapper has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the hip-hop industry, from RZA to Frank Ocean, and even Pharrell Williams.

Other acts also performing on the Sunday date are; Jungle, Moodoid and Denai Moore. The DJs in session on this day include; Joy Orbison B2B Boddika, Lunice, George Fitzgerald, and DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn.

Overall, even as a relatively new festival on the Parisian music scene, We Love Green will doubtless provide a good time for all attendees, from the huge range of artists it has on offer to its idyllic location in the near heart of Paris. With little known about the event, and few online reviews of previous years, this year will surely spell a larger coverage for this almost heavenly festival.
