Music in Paris at the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud park
Launched in 2003, the Rock en Seine festival in the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud park west of Paris is the city's premier annual rock festival.
The lineup for the 2014 edition (August 22nd, 23rd and 24th) features incredible artists such as Arctic Monkeys, Portishead, Queens of the Stone Age, Blondie and The Prodigy.
Other acts confirmed include The Horrors, Cage The Elephant, Wild Beasts, Royal Blood, Hozier, Tiger Bell, Lucius, Clean Bandit, Giana Factory, La Roux and Cloud Nothings.
Speaking to NME about the slot, drummer Matt Helders said: "We'e got better, now we're more ready to headline festivals (…)I feel we've got better at it. I won't be anywhere near as nervous as I was. Excited, but not scared."
The entrance is free for kids from six to ten, only if they're with an adult who's got a ticket for the festival. And to get plenty of rest during and after the festival, be sure to check into the Millennium Hotel Charles de Gaulle.
There can't be a more magical sight than watching the stunning fountains of the Palace of Versailles dance to a soundtrack of music, transforming into different colours.
