Rock en Seine 2016!

Rock en Seine

By Kayla Flores

Wow what a weekend! This year’s Rock en Seine truly set a standard for summer music festivals. With various activities, food, bars, and more along with one of the best line ups for rock music, Rock en Seine was a smash hit!

Friday’s big acts being The Last Shadow Puppets, Breakbot, Two Door Cinema Club, Clutch, and Damien Jr. Gong Marley. Amongst the big names, Friday truly held an impressive list. Saturday was not disappointing either, with great acts including Wolfmother, Beau, Bring Me The Horizon, Grand Blanc, La Femme, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeros, L7, and Massive Attack. Wolfmother truly rocked out and engaged with the crowd. Beau performed at the Pression Live stage drawing in fesitval goers with their eclectic sound. Heather and Emma of Beau, had great energy on stage.  Beau even surprised fans with a new song! Throughout the terrible heat, attendees were able to stay cool with snow cones, ice cream, and sporadic water fights! It was quite a fun time.

With the intense heat continuing into Sunday’s festivities, the staff continued to make a bearable environment by providing splash zones near the stages as well as the whole park held water stations allowing festival goers to fill up and stay hydrated. Sunday started off with Maestro who was unique in his sound and kept the early crowd entertained. Blues Pills performed on the main stage and drew in a large crowd, despite the heat, with a high number of music lovers taking shelter in the shade while their favorite bands performed. Kevin Morby was excellent in his ability to pull a crowd with his beautiful voice. KillASon is a French rapper, whom performed all his work in English attracting the international crowd. He truly is a performer as he danced all around the stage and entertained everyone in the audience. Going from the rap world to the heart of Harlem with Gregory Porter allowed for a great transition to calm down once again. The saxophone and piano skills of his band were exceptional and captured the majority of festival goers as he paid tribute to the lives lost in the world this past year. Following the wonderful jazz, we moved to see Miike Snow, an up and coming hit maker in the electro pop world. With many hits already, Miike Snow showed his versatility and performed a great show. Then it was time to reminisce of the simpler times in the early 2000s for any American teenager, it was time for Sum 41. Performing all their early hits, as well as announcing an album release in October, the crowd was ecstatic jumping up and down and singing along to all of Sum 41’s hit songs as well as recent work.

After using up quite a bit of energy, it was time to grab some food. Dining options at Rock en Seine were endless. International options including cuisines from South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, as well as North America. Essentially a taste of the world. We decided to hit the Burrito Truck creating beautiful chicken burritos and nachos with jalapenos as well as grabbing some refreshing beer. Finishing up our grub, we ran over to see the one, the only, the legend. Iggy Pop. In true fashion, Iggy got the crowd rowdy and loud! It was a special event to see this man perform live. With such energy and excitement, we caught up with CHVRCHES and calmed down to their synthpop sound. The final act was none other than, Foals. Having the opportunity to see them live at a festival earlier this summer, it was awesome to end the summer with Foals again. What a treat. These guys truly speak to the crowd with their high energy, engaging conversation pieces, and all around great vibes.

IMG_8177Rock en Seine was everything and more. With great staff, amazing food, the best line up of artists, and a thought out layout allowed for ease for festival goers. Acoustics were on point allowing performances to be held in similar time slots, but not interrupting each other.

Great job, until next summer. Rock en Seine 2016, rock on!

Patti Rothberg

Patti Rothberg
Ulterior Motives
Double On Tundra Records

New York-based singer, songwriter, recording artist, multi-instrumentalist, and painter-artist released her sixthth full-length album. This fifteen track release gives us a broad exposure to Patti’s distinctive vocals in a folk-rock acoustic singer-songwriter setting although there’s still some rock to be had (”Whatever You Do”). The album is very much stream-of-consciousness with plenty of innuendo. So, listen carefully.
