The rock scene in Nantes is recognised as being one of the richest in France today. A story that stretches back over six decades to the pioneers in the Salons Maudits in the 1960s, to the group Tri Yann and their millions of records sold. The story told by the social rock of Tequila, the Celt-Finnish mix-match of EV, the fantastic hits of Elmer Food Beat and the power rock of Dolly. But also, elegantly drawn by Dominique A, Jeanne Cheral and Philippe Katerine or more recently by C2C and Christine and The Queens.
 

A social and political story written in the rehearsal rooms, studios, bars, venues, in record shops and on local radio by activists and artists in the shadows. A unique exhibition to understand how the town updated its status from ‘Sleeping Beauty’ to ‘bubbling and sparkling’.
