Four things to remember from this first night of the Brive Festival

Tonight, 9,105 danced to the sounds of DJ Rivo, James BKS, Synapson and Blak Eyed Peas for the first night of the 18th edition of the Brive Festival. A first night that started around 6:30 pm and ended at midnight with the Black Eyed Peas. Here’s what we took away from it.

James BKS, the surprise

Stéphane Canarias predicted this, and he was not wrong: “We bet on Vianney or Jain, and they exploded on the stage. This year, we bet on James BKS, he has great potential” , he trusted in early July. And he wasn’t wrong. The arrival of Idris Elba, its producer and musician, on stage, during a piece, created a pleasant surprise. The public did not hide their happiness.

In his first time on the Corrèze scene, James burned it, and he surprised the festival-goers, especially for Clément, 27: “I don’t know, but it’s very good, very ethnic. in the dance. Good what a surprise!”

François, 23, doesn’t know either: “The Brive Festival allows you to discover new artists, it’s not the kind of music I usually listen to, but it sets the mood.”

The madness of Synapson and its “guests”.

Synapson is at home on the Brive Festival stage, inviting talented guests, including the charismatic singer Ana Kova, who accompanies James BKS. The duo had fun and so did the public. The big pit grew slowly. Night fell but the temperature went up a notch.

9,105 festival-goers to cheer on the Black Eyed Peas

For this first night, 9,105 people attended the Brive Festival site to cheer the first international star to welcome the event: the Black Eyed Peas. The American group did not wait for its fans by playing the greatest hits from the opening. A crazy show! Giant screen, big sound… We even saw Fergie and Shakira in the picture!

A festival that matters

The Brive Festival, now “the age of the majority” and its territorial impact cannot be denied. It is economical. “This is 2.4 million euros spent by seventy local service providers, explained Stéphane Canarias, general manager of Festival Production. We occupy four hotels, just for the festival teams and the artists .”

Brive, Bourges, Marmande, Belfort… Why are music festivals so valuable for their territories?

It also has thousands of festival goers who are 35 years old on average and often stay two nights in Brive. “50% of it comes from outside within a radius of 200 kilometers. 20% sleep in a hotel or other commercial accommodation”, determined the director of the festival, who also worked with 300 young people for four days.
