When the Bikini is fine, everything is fine! The gradual but real reopening of this emblematic concert venue – and which we had missed so much – is a sign that the drastic restrictions, and first and foremost the containment and closure of performance venues, due to the health crisis are , fingers crossed, behind us.
“On a harshest past”
“We are not immune to a disaster, tempers Antoine Fantuz, programmer of the Bikini, but yes, we had the hardest part: the public, reassured, comes back, the concerts resume, on a 75% gauge, or 1,125 people. We are on the right track, even if we still have to convince a slightly older public who is resistant to the health pass. “
A very French program
Happy consequence – there is at least one – of the health situation, the fall program will be largely hexagonal, international groups still experiencing difficulties – or reluctance – to organize European tours.
Hexagonal, but still very diverse: “It’s in the DNA of Bikini to offer a variety of shows,” observes Antoine Fantuz. There will be a lot of hip-hop, song, rock, electro, headliners and rising artists. “
Dionysos, Berywam, Fatals Picards …
Between now and Christmas, we will be able to go and listen to French sure values like Benjamin Biolay (December 7th but it’s full), Suzanne (September 27), the excellent Oldelaf (the 3rd of October), Dionysus and his “Time Machine Experience” (October 5), Toulouse world beatbox champions Berywam (October 13), the very rock’n’roll The Lumiñanas (October 22), the delicate Gael Faye (November 12), Caravan Palace, always a great moment of celebration, November 19, General Electrik (November 26), Lilly Wood and the Sting on December 10, Fatals Picards the next day and the fantastic Danakil December 18. We will celebrate the return of Stiff-Heads (October 28), Miss K (October 29), from Confidence (November 22) and angel December 19.
IAM October 17
Hip-hop and electro will be well represented, with Roné from September 24, the legendary I AM (October 17), Yassin Bey (aka Mos Def, October 31), Caballero and Jeanjass (November 3), Thylacine (October 30), Synapson (October 23), False (October 25) and Taylor wax (December 9).
The great return of the stranglers!
There will still be some foreign artists, and not just any: the Turks ofAltin gunn arrive with their wonderful psychedelic rock (September 25), the overwhelming The Yegros will sing on October 27 and the veterans Stranglers, who will return with a new album, “Dark Matters”, will shake Ramonville (Haute Garonne) December 5. Stainless steel “Men in black”, led by the Frenchy Jean-Jacques Burnel, are back, and on stage, is that something? you will have been warned!
A top-of-the-range winter program, before some major events in early 2022 such as Fire ! Chatterton, The Woman, Idles, The Empress, Yann Tiersen, Morcheeba, Gaëtan Roussel and our favorite: The Divine Comedy. Yes there, that’s for sure: life starts again.
