Soirs d’été, a newcomer among the region’s festivals, which appeared in 2021 with the aim of promoting regional companies, welcomed 1,226 spectators last year at the Silvacane Abbey in La Roque-d’Anthéron. Already making it a must-see for heralding summer in the north of Bouches-du-Rhône and the south of Luberon.

The new edition promises jazz, rock, swing, contemporary dance, hip-hop and a big orchestra, from July 3 to 7.

This Friday, July 5, at 8 p.m., opening with a vintage evening with Baton Rouge (jazz, rock swing. This “petite fanfare jazz” promises to sow a joyful and festive atmosphere like no other at Soirs d’été. At 9:30 p.m., it’s time for rock’n’roll, gypsy, blues, and swing with the group SurfinK Sextette made up of six musicians. Entering the musical universe of Surfin’ K Sextette is a bit like opening the door to a cabinet of curiosities…

A contemporary dance/hip-hop evening with the GUID Preljocaj is scheduled for Saturday July 6 at 8 p.m.: generally composed of six dancers from the Aix ballet, the GUID will perform excerpts from Angelin Preljocaj’s shows from 1985 to today.

Musical journey to Japan

At 9:30 p.m., still contemporary dance with the show Suit from the Ruée des Arts company, with a choreography by Hafid Sour. The desire to create Suit was born from encounters, from a reflection on social representations and the image of success that they send back to us. It will be a question of shaking up the codes by mixing the world of urban dance from the street and that of costume, by bringing together performance and poetry.

Finally, on Sunday July 7, a great musical journey to Japan with the great Orchestre d’harmonie de la Marine nationale, based in Toulon, and its 76 musicians is on offer.

It is one of the most prestigious musical formations of the French armies which will offer an exceptional concert paying homage to the land of the rising sun, from its most ancestral to its most modern culture.

From July 5 to 7, at 8 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Full €20; reduced €15; free for under 12s.
