PALEO FESTIVAL NYON 2012 – LINE UP
The History of Paléo Festival Nyon
In 1977, the Festival took up residence on the Colovray meadow, a magical waterside site, where it remained until 1989. From 1990, Paleo Festival has been installed at l’Asse, a meadowland site of over 15 hectares situated to the north of the town of Nyon
More than thirty years after its first edition, which as the “First Folk Festival”, drew an audience of some 1,800 people in the town assembly rooms in Nyon, Paléo Festival is today one of Europe’s most important musical events. Since its creation, the Festival has been growing in a regular and managed way, gaining steadily in professionalism during this period of development. Each year, more than 176 concerts and shows are on offer to the 230,000 members of the public who fill the Festival’s 84-hectare Asse site (car parks included), situated above the town of Nyon. To this day, over 4,5 million people have contributed to this unwavering popular success. Over the last few years, the Festival has been sold out before it even started and enjoys an ever-growing reputation. In 2009, over 650 media representatives covered a highly colourful edition.
