This will be her only visit to France in the summer of 2024. Lana Del Rey will perform at Rock en Seine on August 21, an extra day added for the American star at this festival on the outskirts of Paris. “This exceptional evening will begin in the company of several other artists, revealed soon,” the organizers indicated on Friday.
The pop singer's concerts are always an event. In July, at L'Olympia in Paris, more than 42,000 ticket requests were made for the approximately 2,800 seats available in the hall. The ultra-fans had slept the day before the show in sleeping bags on the sidewalk to be sure of reaching the front of the stage when the doors opened. Lana Del Rey then appeared surrounded by thirteen people, including musicians, singers and dancers. The star walked the stage between piano, swing and scripted break for a haircut.
For Rock en Seine, fans will have until Sunday 11:59 p.m. to register for the presale via a form integrated into the festival website. A private link will be sent to them Monday morning for a pre-sale opening at 10:00 a.m., which will last until 6:00 p.m., before the general opening of sales.
Rock en Seine, which was initially scheduled to last from August 22 to 25, revealed its first headliners at the end of November: PJ Harvey, Massive Attack, The Offspring, The Hives, The Kills, Måneskin. The Domaine national de Saint-Cloud will also host The Smile, a parallel project by Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood, who escaped from Radiohead. Zaho de Sagazan, LCD Soundsystem, Soulwax and Fred Again were also announced.
Rock en Seine attracted 144,000 festival-goers in 2023, an edition marked by an all-female opening night around megastar Billie Eilish.
