The rather unusually named Weather Festival is a purely house and techno event which takes place in the unique surroundings of Le Bourget Aiport in the north of the city. Hosting such big names as Adam Beyer, Nina Kraviz and Ben Klock last year, you can rest assured that 2017’s line-up is set to be a techno-lover’s paradise. One of the big draws is the venue - there are few locations where you dance all night in the shadow of real rockets and jet planes, listening to the world’s top DJs on a top quality soundsystem in a huge aircraft hangar. Come to Paris and check it out for yourself!
You can buy tickets for Weather Festival from the official website here. As the organisers also put on a winter festival, make sure you’re buying tickets for the right event. If you’re planning on attending the festival, fly in to either Charles de Gaulle or Orly airport. If you’re travelling from Charles de Gaulle, take the RER B network express in the direction of St-Remy Les Chevreuse and from Orly go towards Mitry-Claye. In both cases, get off at Le Bourget. Once there, you’ll find that the festival venue is clearly signposted. Alternatively, Le Bourget is a 15-minute taxi ride from the city centre.
Like many festivals in France, Weather Festival has moved to a cashless system. How does it work? Head to the festival website to create an account and top it up using PayPal. When you arrive at the festival, you’ll be given a bracelet with the amount of credit which corresponds to the money you’ve placed on your account. You can use the bracelet to pay for everything during your trip to the festival, including food, drink and merchandise. After the festival, you can request a refund of those credits you haven’t used but make sure you do so quickly as there is an expiry date for refund requests.
Wake up rested and refreshed after a good night’s sleep and a warm shower and then head to the festival to see your favourite artists. The festival is easily accessible by public transport so stay in a nearby B&B, studio, flat or spare room with Eventful Stays. Check out our accommodation in Paris.
Stay on in Paris for a few days after the festival to check out what else this great city has to offer: head down to Père Lachaise cemetery to see the final resting place of The Doors frontman Jim Morrison; take in the visual beauty of the magnificent Sacré-Coeur; and contemplate the masterpieces housed in the Louvre Museum.
