LA JOIE DE VIVRE
In the past decade, So Frenchy So Chic has grown from a small series of concerts into one of summer’s most hotly anticipated boutique festivals. The Adelaide night will be set against a charming village-like backdrop, perfect for dancing under the stars, with top wine and French food to be enjoyed by moonlight. Always memorable, this is an event all Francophiles, music-lovers and the chic-est of Adelaide will not want to miss. Early birds can get in early and save 20% on the door price on a limited number of tickets.
Featuring the crème de la crème of the local French foodie scene, festival goers can look forward to wine, aperitifs and specialty French bites from La Buvette matched by the contemporary French flavours of the renowned bistro, Cliché. Leave plenty of room for mussels, oysters, crêpes, charcuterie, cheese platters, raclette, macaroons, ice cream and much more. More details on this appetising selection will be announced soon. For those who like to plan their picnic ahead of time, there are specially curated hampers to preorder with tasty inclusions from roasted chicken or ratatouille baguettes to goose egg meringues and berry salad with cream fraiche, along with equally délicieux vegetarian and gluten free options. And what garden party would be complete without Champagne? The finest from Laurent Perrier will be chilled and flowing all day, as will French beer, rosé from Provence, reds and whites from Bordeaux, and special cocktails at the SFSC vintage caravan.
A longtime SFSC favourite, the Nigerian-born, French rapper FÉFÉ will take the stage with a brand new repertoire of chic Afro-influenced beats. Performing tracks from his 2017 album Mauve, Féfé will leave have audiences moving with his rhythmic repertoire and signature style, joy and je ne sais quoi. Lovers of San Francisco’s Quannaum crew (Blackalicious, Lyrics Born, DJ Shadow and more) may already be familiar with the French-born Hervé Salters, aka GENERAL ELEKTRIKS. Boasting collaborations with Blackalicious, Femi Kuti and Mayer Hawthorne to name a few, we are very excited to bring his soulful, vintage funk-meets-jazz groove to Australia this summer. Both seductive and sweet, retro and modern, the très avant-garde JUNIORE is our super-stylish and Saint Laurent-approved addition to the So Frenchy lineup. Self-described as ‘désespérément optimistes’ (desperate optimists) we’d rather describe them as the lost connection between fashion, surf, psychedelic pop, spaghetti westerns and the nouvelle vague film movement. Big sound, big fun. Pronounced ‘Elijay’, the three piece L.E.J has carved out a cult following with mesmerizing covers and originals, using three distinctive sounds: vocal harmonies, percussion and cello. Having broken through reinterpreting hits like Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ to ‘Panda’ by Desiigner with more than 150 million plays on Youtube, they’re now about to win Australian crowds with their own amazing compositions from their debut album.
