Imagine about thirty people who decide to self finance a music festival touring around france…Imagine a free festival which combines artistes, musicians, photographers established and emerging... From Normandy to Languedoc Rousillion, Satourne electrifies the nights setting up its stunning stage (a cube of six meters tall, on which are projected a wide variety of visual arts) on exceptional and natural sites.
That was Satourne in 2013, a spontaneous caravan, led by an admiral bus, a unique platform that gave the public the chance to exchange and meet with the artistes. A film retracing this adventure will soon be available on this page.
In 2014, Satourne doubles up its ambition and aims to become a vibrant cultural village, a great alternative to summer festivals with its eclectic and original line up. Offering an amazing sensory experience Satourne is a great why to encounter head on a wide variety of counter cultures and daring ideas.
Satourne will definitely be a creative explosion thanks to all of you !!!
Our vision is to set up a modular village which gravitates around the cube and the music and performances it will showcase. A big top will show case concerts, seminars, discussions, and environmental forums, forums on sound and space, on art and bio-diversity, on philo-gastronomy. But will also host a cinema , where rare, and independent movies will be projected ( the program is soon to be released).
- A video wall and surround sound system will be the backdrop for the opera "Romantica Romantica", a show by the collectif Dark Blue Orchestra, as well as other projections hosting musique and image.
- An acoustique scene will host concerts during the day and the night, while also hosting educational and fun activities made for children and curious grow ups!
- A sculpture specific to each set up will be erected made only out of recycled materials. - An original vintage store will customize and alter your old clothes.
- A group of "trucks", will offer all sorts of services (sound studio, beauty salon, library and food trucks).
- A local cuisine, with seasonal products blending simplicity and gastronomy. A huge variety of savers from all around the world!
- "Sensation cubes". To enter this 2m/2m structure invites you on a voyage, visiting all the themes that define Satourne. In between music, science and art, this space will immerse you in a calm and cosmic storm.
- A space dedicated to yoga / taï-chi / massages / sweat-lodge / reflexology, with training available over a few days. Our adventure will be continuously filmed and streamed, then put under the form of a documentary with an instagram coming.
Those who wish can join us through out our journey, every site will be equipped with a camping site and the necessary hygienic services whilst respecting the environment.
Our itinerary has been published on our site!
Thanks to your support, Satourne should leave in July, and finish in August, we thank you in advance for the immense help this project so desperately needs!
Bien sûr vous êtes tous invités.
- NIKTUS -
In 1985, Niktus confounded with Marco Prince, the band FFF. He recorded, inspired by fonk fusion, 4 albums, with the very eclectic "Free For Fever" which came out in stores at the end of 94'…That same year, whilst opening the Transmusicales of Rennes, Salam Aleikum (FFF management) and Transmut organized an evening of free improvisation where during a whole night, in a beautifully choreographed chaos , and in total and unpredictable osmoses, FFF, HUMAN SPIRIT, MALKA, the RAGGASONICS, PRO-ZAK and PAT CASH (cosmic wurst) to name just a few, performed with more more than 40 musicians, Dj's, singers and performers… The concept Niktusircus was launched. A high tech show with beautifully composed visuals and sounds, based on the fragility of improvisation that births when a collective of artistes meet. To ensure adequate quality and consistency, the different "cells" can at any moment take control of the whole organism…
- JUAN TRIP' -
Is Juan Trip' a human being? Ghost from another world, cosmic traveler, he is the poet, the intergalactic peace messenger transforming, through the beauty of his electromagnetic harmonies the sad post apocalyptic desolation of civilizations devastated by seismic phenomenon's, where alchemical wars in joyous elevation where celebrations and psychedelic waves bring to the rare survivors eternal magical concerts where fantastic luminescent crystals hang in decors of purple velvet for us, the earthlings, survivors of several lost worlds, to them, the invisible hysterical Atlantean's through his visionary spirit and by their will to survive they give him the doors of the magical theatre. His music and his multiple faces traverse the red brick walls, flying saucers whose purple hearts move to the rhythm towards the top of an isolated tree.

- ITHAK -
- BLONDI'S SALVATION -
In their own Farfisa-Guantuesque way, they reuse mythic sounds of an era that they do not want to believe disappeared, that of the Vox and the arrival of oriental sonorities. An electronic tempura proliferated its aura to permit the groups psychic evolution, which has only taped into the first of its nine feline lives. Surf and religious, folk and garage this is their own vision, showing their modernity and charactering them.

- WISTITEAST BALKAN KAMIKAZE -
Wistiteast Balkan Kamikaze is a Parisien Balkan rock duo, composed of Erik Maunoury on drums and Loran Bozic on violin. they mix their influences, distorting and looping the sounds of their violin, their drums, to eventually create a free form that only the duo permits.
