We Love Green Festival, day II
Jardins de Bagatelle01.06.2014 #music
Less sunny than its predecessor, the second day of the festival confirmed the success of the third edition and made shine the musical jewels which performed that afternoon on the big live stage. Is not victim of his success who wants.
In the VIP area trusty by Heineken and the organic taco stand, Charlotte Gainsbourg plays petanque with her family and Yseult, (almost) winner of the New Star 2014, is thrilled when Lorde’s turn comes, obviously in a good place in the discotheque of the soul sensation made in TNT. Xavier Veilhan, faceted artist, takes a nap on the fat herbs of Bagatelle while the fine flower of the Parisian labels beises itself a torticollis. One wonders who is not there.
On the menu of this second musical act, in chronological order: Denai Moore, Moodoïd, Earl Sweatshirt, Jungle, Lorde and Foals. Half chill, half violence, just enough to satisfy the eclectic atmosphere and carry the festival-goers through the day, the night, the sporadic clouds and the endless tail of the dry toilets (girls). Everyone does the job, but the crowd only really gets together when the American rapper, a very young member of the bubbling collective Odd Future, releases his first flow. It won’t let up, since Jungle and the two headliners of the day, Lorde and Foals, will follow. Two styles, two moods, no disappointments. A Sunday afternoon like we love them.
At the other end of the battlefield, the electro scene was full of young people who loved the open-air trip. The post-adolescent aggregation will dance that day to the sounds of Girls Girls Girls, George Fitzgerald and Lunice, the footwork straight from Dj Spinn’s Chicago, to end in the arid peaks of London’s underground with the magnetic vs Joy Orbison / Boddika. Electro, you know.
Beyond the hedonistic attractions offered by the event, We Love Green is full of little green modules ready to go with anything that is not. Awareness, information. We also meet the most boozy guinguettes of the season, including Angèle’s, who promise our stomachs to be eco-responsible, chew organic, digest like green garbage bins by concluding the process in the most ethical way possible. End of the end: the stands with an irreproachable quality charter, from the vintage shirt at Marika Waii to the little crochet toys of the cutissime brand for young Louise and Marcel du IXe, MyuM.
Until the next one, stay faithful to your loves, otherwise We Love Green would become green. B.B.
