All the names are there. Bigflo and Oli unveiled this Tuesday in the premises of La Dépêche du Midi the programming of the Rose Festival, co-produced by the group La Dépêche and Bleu Citron, which will take place on September 2 and 3 at the MEETT.
For several months, the two brothers had been making the sauce rise. Some (big) names of artists programmed for the Rose Festival had already been announced last December.

Rappers Ziak, Damso, Chilla, IAM and DJ Paul Kalkbrenner were the first to respond. More recently, on May 14, the singer crowned with a music victory Ben Mezuet confirmed his attendance at the event, which had been canceled in 2021 due to the health crisis.

Here is the complete program: on Friday evening, Zinée, the group L’Impératrice, Deluxe, the duo Mouss and Hakim Zebda, Ben Mezué, Damso, Ziak, Polo and Pan will perform on stage. On Saturday, it will be the turn of NTO, Chilla, Luidji, Iam, FKJ, Folamour, Laylow, Paul Kalkbrenner and Bon Entendeur to take the stage.

Bigflo and Oli will play both nights. “It is a real pride to organize this event with you”, launched in the preamble Jean-Nicolas Baylet, the general manager of the group La Dépêche du Midi, to the duo and to Simon Capus, the director of Bleu Citron.

A mix of styles

The festival will therefore welcome electro, pop, French variety and… rap. “But be careful, this is not a rap festival, warns Bigflo, dressed in a sweatshirt in the colors of the event. We didn’t want to lock ourselves into this style. On the other hand for this first edition, it is a festival of young people. We wanted to talk to our generation. But everyone is welcome. »

Oli adds that in future editions, Sunday could become a day that will welcome artists who touch families.
“The objective is for all Toulouse residents to be happy to go to the Rose Festival. And who knows? In 10 years or even after us, it may become a classic that has placed our city on the festival map, ”rejoices the rapper.

After posting the new names joining the lineup on their social media, the two brothers celebrated the announcement in St. Peter’s Square. Bigflo and Oli made an appointment with Toulouse residents and offered them goodies and tickets to be won for the festival. At 7 p.m., in the Saint des Seins bar, DJ Grizzy, singers Enae, Lombre and WarEnd performed. A taste of what promises to be the festival of the year in Toulouse.


The scenography, a nod to the city

The new exhibition center is 20 kilometers from Toulouse. But on September 2 and 3, 2022, the Pink City should move to Aussone, where the MEETT is located. Bigflo and Oli worked on a “visual universe to promote the city of Toulouse”. An immersive scenography in which festival-goers will find the emblematic monuments of the city. The Pont Neuf, the dome of La Grave or the Place Saint-Pierre will be in the color of Toulouse, pink. “We are in the process of seeing with the owners of bars in Place Saint-Pierre to integrate them into the project”, slips Oli. An element of the decor is still under discussion but is important for Bigflo, the famous Ferris wheel, installed in summer on the banks of the Garonne. “Honestly, it would be cool if we managed to put one on the festival grounds”.

Information: The price of a ticket for one evening is 46 euros. The fixed price for the two days is 72 euros. Reservation on www.rosefestival.fr
