Christine and the Queens, new line-up confirmation
Doctor Music Festival is getting ready for the new year
Doctor Music Festival welcomes an exciting new name to its line-up, Christine and the Queens. The new pop icon is set to land in Escalarre in July, ready to dazzle us with the glamour and elegance of her synth pop. Christine and the Queens, AKA Héloïse Letissier, has become one of the most acclaimed names on the French music scene, after the worldwide success of her debut album in 2016, Chaleur Humaine, which marked the arrival of a new global star to the European pop world.
Christine and the Queens recently released a second album, Chris, consolidating her position as a leading artist at the forefront of the current pop scene, offering an uncompromisingly intimate and personal take on pop inspired by a bold and authentic feminism.
In the upcoming months of the new year, we will be revealing the final names that will complete the line-up of this new festival edition. This Reincarnation edition promises to be an unforgettable one, offering ground-breaking and exciting performances from the likes of The Bizarre World of Frank Zappa (live hologram); expected to be a once in a lifetime show. Ahmet Zappa, the son of Frank Zappa comments, ”I think that it is perfectly fitting that Frank Zappa will be playing the Doctor Music Festival because people will need a doctor after we sufficiently blow everyone's minds and ears with Frank's fantastic music and the insanity of our shows visuals. The bizarre world of Frank Zappa won't disappoint. See you all soon!”
Doctor Music Festival is an event where the most eclectic and select musical variety joins together with a plethora of other activities to create an unforgettable experience, as described by Neo Sala, general director of DMF, in an interview with Mondo Sonoro: “One of the stages at Doctor Music will be a tent which we call the ying-yang. Festival-goers will be able to come here to take part in yoga and other alternative therapies, as well as enjoy some chill-out music. The space will be a mobile-free zone and lockers will be provided for safe storage of phones when entering the area. Hopefully you will realise that you don’t actually want your pone with you, and that you don’t need it!” … The evening will welcome an electronic music experience from sunset to sunrise… You can dance the night away with the best DJ’s and underground electronic music... “The musical programme will come to a close at sunrise, a climatic moment, a moment of trance… Back in 1996 and without even knowing it, we had already created an amazing festival experience and now we want to make it even better than before. If you will be coming to Escalarre this summer, you can expect to enjoy great music, and if you are open to it, something even more special…”
