Opportunities to party are plentiful in the Metropolis.
“Montpellier is the ideal party city,” exclaims Jordan, a student at the faculty of letters who never misses a Saturday to go out, “There’s something for every taste, for every budget and there’s a real fiesta mentality!” The Heat, The Fizz, The Panama Café , The Opera, The Milk and The Cargo get thousands of Montpellier inhabitants out dancing every weekend.
« It's one of the capitals of electro, » says Laurie, a fan of techno sounds. “If you’re into the latest in electro, there are loads of places and events happening.” In December, some 30,000 revellers will enjoy the sounds of ‘I Love Techno, Europe’, the biggest electro indoor event in Europe. Armel Campana, organiser of the festival which attracts big names from all over the world, says, “Montpellier is the home of electronic music, and we can't imagine it being anywhere else but here.”
If you prefer the outdoors, then ‘Family Piknik’ is for you; located at the Montcalm park in the heart of summer, this sweet electro ‘folly’ has seduced electro music fans from all over Europe. And not forgetting ‘Tohu Bohu’, the reverse electro festival of Radio France, which makes Montpellier jump each year. So get down to Montpellier for a party!
