French Summer Fun


I’ve just found out about a fun, new service called Francophonik. It’s a place to discover new French music, download music, and win tickets for gigs and festivals. On their Facebook page you can share new French music discoveries with others.

Since I’ve been living here in England, I’ve been trying to learn a bit more about continental Europe, so discovering Francophonik has been a fun way to get my feet wet. This is a great place to learn about all of the fun, trendy, and quirky things going on in France. I love it!


Currently, they’re holding a competition in conjunction with travel company Eurolines, which offers the chance for tickets to the Rock en Seine Festival. The festival is held about 10 kilometers (approximately 6 miles) from Paris and runs from Friday, August 26th to Sunday, August 28th.  They’re going to be featuring some great acts at the festival, such as: the Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Tinie Tempah, and many, many more. This sounds like a fun line-up and I’d love to be there. I’m a fan of most music in general, so I’d like to experience as many groups as I can. Seeing the Foo Fighters would be fun though since I’ve been a fan of some of their music in the past.


If you’re in the UK, all you have to do to enter is visit the Francophonik  Facebook page, like it, and then apply for tickets by ticking a box there. It’s quick and easy! After ticking the box for the festival, click on the ‘enter selected competitions’ button to be in with a chance to win some tickets. I think that this is a great way to experience the festival and soak up a bit of French culture.

The Rock en Seine Festival started in 2003 and has grown in stature over the years. It has increasingly attracted many top acts and it is a well-loved part of the summer music festival scene.


I hope that you all will go by the Francophonik Facebook page and check everything out!
