It thereby fosters better interaction and a greater variety of experiments in different creative sectors such as design, imagery, graphics, food culture and architecture. An accessible and unifying force, Nuits Sonores aims to bring together a varied audience that is uninhibited by generational, social or geographical barriers. This ambition is reflected in the festival’s physical presence at the heart of communities, districts and living environments.Every year for 5 days and 5 nights, the festival inhabits 40 locations across the city of Lyon, including distinguished industrial heritage sites, iconic landmarks and everyday locations. During this time, Nuits Sonores transforms Lyon into a unique urban space of freedom, togetherness and sharing.NUITS SONORES ABROADThanks to its international partnerships Arty Farty exports the Nuits sonores festival around the world.
