Diversity defining a new genre of festival in Lyon

Olympia Production (Vivendi Village) and OL Groupe, organized around the Olympic Lyonnais soccer club, have formed a joint venture to launch a festival combining music, street art, a gastronomic village and sporting activities, to be held in Lyon in June 2020.

The Felyn Stadium Festival, which will be held for the first time on June 19 and 20, 2020 at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon/Decines, is a new genre of festival that puts diversity in the spotlight. The program will treat festival-goers to a mix of international and French artists, including new talents. As well as the music performances, this festival will add street art, a gastronomic village and sporting activities to its cultural and intergenerational blend.

The names of the first confirmed artists to play at the Felyn Stadium Festival give a good idea of what will definitely be one of the major cultural highlights in metropolitan Lyon in 2020: Red Hot Chili Peppers, DJ Snake, Dadju and Bad Bunny.

The Felyn Stadium Festival stems from a joint venture between Olympia Production, which is part of Vivendi Village, and OL Groupe. This joint venture reinforces the long-standing ties between Vivendi—through Canal+ and its ticketing activities in particular—and Olympique Lyonnais.

Olympia Production currently organizes several festivals (Garorock, Les Déferlantes, Live au Campo, Brive Festival) and co-produces a series of others. OL Groupe, organized around Olympique Lyonnais, is a leader in the entertainment and media sector in France.
