Concert during the Secret Nights festival in Aulnoye-Aymeries

The Grande and Jardin stages - a great mix

The Secret Nights has 2 main stages where great names from the international music scene perform one after another for 3 days. There are also less well-known, but very promising bands. The Grande stage is “open to all winds for discovery” and has an inter-generational atmosphere. Just steps away, see you at the Jardin, a smaller stage. The lungs of the festival, the Jardin is the ideal place “to discover young budding talents...or older but still green ones”! Arno, Christine and the Queens, Fauve, Girls in Hawaï, The Do, Asaf Avidan and Camille have delighted festival crowds since the creation of the festival in 2002.

After have seen a few images of the Secret Nights festival, we bet you can’t wait for the next edition...!’s a secret!

Get aboard a bus with curtains covering the windows, without knowing which artist you will see, nor where you are going: that’s what we call “Secret routes”! A chapel, a boat, a barn in the Avesnois countryside, fortifications, the swimming pool? So many improbable, surprising venues each year to revive your curiosity. You will only want one more thing: to get on the next bus for another adventure! On the Sunday you can choose the “grand route” and discover all the artists and venues. Tempted?
