23.30 The last time we saw Breakbot on stage, Thibaut Berland was alone behind his turntables and his machines and Irfane singer took the microphone on some titles. But since “Still Waters”, the second album released earlier this year, this funky dance machine is officially a duo in the studio and a live band. Three musicians (guitar, bass, drums) and singer Yasmin accompany tonight dandy pastel suits and excellent singer.
Their “feel good” music may lack a little soul tonight to win hearts. Even forcing the slap bass, it does that sways gently in the front row. Blame it on a busy day under the sun?

23.05 Last group get on the big stage this Friday the Last Shadow Puppets . Backed by a string quartet, the British pop group started its concert with “Calm Like You”. The red light is omnipresent. Powerful and class.

22.45 Pending Breakbot and Flavien Berger, some took refuge on the new Dancing Stage Rock en Seine. The hypnotic rhythms of the dj and producer The Mverte they let speak their bodies.
22.30 Owls, the Royal Republic ! The public balance its thousands of right arm to the left while the group installs a joyous musical chaos and two spots in the shape of lightning spit their golden light! The crowd is under the spell of these four that remain stylish despite the sweat of passion and warmth of sound. Adam Grahn, the leader of the Swedish group, recounts his misadventures few hours earlier in Parisian plugs. He spits on the ground. No one seems to blame him. “You’re nice people.” The public remain well there all night, fascinated by this charismatic singer inviting the crowd to drink with him ( “Sköll!”). Everything ends in ovation. As a parting gift, a pink bra landed on stage and finally hooked the microphone.
22.20 Before you swing the heavy “Defiant Order” Little Mike ( Birdy Nam Nam ) takes the microphone: “We are very happy to be back at Rock en Seine. But it is a little shy. we hope you will loosen us. ” The trio has not lost its punk energy with its scratch battle. Little Mike is awesome. As with every appearance on stage, Birdy Nam Nam took out the heavy artillery: big bass and hypnotic green and blue lights. In an atmosphere of science fiction, Crazy B grabs the mic: “I want to see everyone jump.” And receptive audience runs. suggestive images to support, Birdy Nam Nam raised the temperature with very dancing “Lazers from the heart.” With great delight, Need announcement: “We slowly approach the end This is the time of the last piece..” A Little Mike adds: “We will play ‘Abbesses’ I do not know if you know it.” Applause unanimous public awaited the inevitable tube Birdy Nam Nam.

20.45 Two Door Cinema Club are a thunderous entrance on the Main Stage. The audience a bit drowsy waking up suddenly. Two Door Cinema Club is here! The white spots on holding its leader glow in the Parisian night. The light spots mingles with the songs they are few words to know them first. Whatever. The concept works. Energy is beautiful and applause are not feigned to this group that recalls a little “Razorlight” in some pieces. The show ends with “What You Know” made famous in France through a TV ad for Euromillion.
20.35 We take the paris: Djeuhdjoah and Lieutenant Nicholson will take a few months misfortune. A guitar and keyboards, the two Parisians share the mic with a potato and biting irony in French that score. Surrounded by a drummer and a bass player, these Bear buddies held their mini afro-disco anthems and science groove with a contagious euphoria. They occur for “Equatorial Congo Airlines concert” on the small stage Ile-de-France but we are sure to find the next year on a bigger stage in their measurement.
20.10 After being desired minutes, Damian Marley , dreadlocks ankle, joins musicians and singers who accompany him to ignite the scene the waterfall. “Are you ready?” The public, who already dance for five minutes, it is acquired.

20.08 It was questionable if the festival were not to be confused by the “Cashless”, the new payment system put in place this year at Parc de Saint-Cloud and excludes any payment currency.

19.30 After playing their flagship title “Bad Blood” with which the group was known in 2013, Bastille begins the funky “Good Grief”.

And it pushes the side of many fans to take a photo. Festival goers form a triangle with their hands, referring to the group’s logo. Bastille plunges the big stage in a club atmosphere of the 90s with their cover of “Rhythm of the Night”. At the end of each verse, the singer seated all the public to better jump on the chorus.
The set ends with the tube “Pompeii”, the public gets the “Heho” the chorus …
19.10 the crowd is compact for the Brian Jonestown Massacre on the stage of Industry and laggards come running. Le.temps has passed since the documentary “Dig” which made him famous in 2004 but the leader Anton Newcombe has always remained true to himself, without compromise. Musically speaking. Because physically he never much looked like Neil Young with its huge paws graying. And it is no longer at war against the whole world. Dressed all in white (a slightly guru air), he drive his six musicians in black and a little beyond the shores of psychedelic side of the garage. It is cooler, Rock en Seine breathes and looks back bewildered Joan Gion and tambourine figurehead.
18.39 After taking a bath of energy and sweat to the crowd, Anderson Paak ends with the opening bars of “Let’s Dance” by David Bowie.
18.25 In concert, the sound of Anderson .Paak is less soft, less subtly jazz disk. But it compensates with tenfold energy. When he slides behind the battery, the power of doubles grouve and tickles the plexus: nirvana.
18.00 .Paak Anderson starts very strong on the stage of the Cascade: white dress, smiling and talkative, the new protege of Dr Dre gives back with faux James Brown tunes.

The English Laurie Vincent and Isaac Holman wear the colors of Slaves since 2013 and to all those who wonder why be punk today, they bring a scathing response. For that ! To this way of giving everything on stage, to keep intact the spirit of rock rebellion, engaging lyrics and feverish notes. The audience, many, follows on the stage Live Pressure answers their call and moves on ultra short pieces, it has pogote St. Cloud.
