In 10 years, the Music Village has become an unmissable fixture between music and film European industries, gathering around 200 participants during the Industry Village.
The Music Village has been thought as a space for informal and festive meetings around film music where composers, music supervisors, editors, publishers come to meet and mingle with producers and directors in the festival.
This is the occasion for us to declare our love to live music with the "Off'": concerts & DJ sets from emerging or confirmed artists come to perform and meet the audience. Previous invited artists include Ibeyi, Peter Doherty, La Femme, Jain, L'Impératrice, Arnaud Rebotini, Lily Wood & The Prick, Superpoze...
ZAHO DE SAGAZAN
OPENING CONCERT + CUT_
Dec 16 • Manoir Savoie, Arc 1950
Zaho de Sagazan is a singular, powerful voice, carried by electronic rhythms that blend Berlin techno and French electronica. The 23-year-old artist tells her own story, dissecting human failings in lyrics of razor-sharp sincerity. His words plunge us into intimacy, where we taste the freedom to dance, think and move. Alongside her drummer Tom Geffray, Zaho delivers modern krautpop, flirting with the madness of Catherine Ringer or Brigitte Fontaine, but always returning to her piano.

CUT_ began their musical journey in 2014, improvising for a live audience. Since then, Sebastiaan Dutilh and Belle Doron have been producing and writing songs mixing pop and electronic music. Following the release of their debut album in 2019, the single Out of touch found its way into Elite (Netflix) and then to number one on the Global Shazam Chart with over 35 million streams. CUT_ is in total creative control, with self-made videos and illustrations, all set to a sound inspired by the Amsterdam club scene.
MUSIC x INDUSTRY PARTY
Dec 17 • Patatrak, Arc 2000
For 20 years, Vitalic has been redefining the notion of French electro, imposing his inimitable touch with tracks that have become classics of club culture. While retaining his DNA, he reinvents himself with each album, with a mix of new-wave, EDM and retro-futuristic sounds. He has produced remixes for Daft Punk, Björk, Paul Kalkbrenner, Etienne Daho, Indochine and Mylène Farmer. As well as performing at major festivals, Vitalic also composes for the cinema, including La Légende de Kaspar Hauser and Disco Boy.

Dec 18 • B.O.B, Arc 2700
An all-round musician, Voyou's new album, "Les Royaumes Minuscules", charts a new course. His many travels and encounters give the album a palpable warmth. In the manner of South American music, the new UK soul-jazz scene and the oriental music in which he likes to immerse himself on a daily basis.
Proof that in every gesture, face and presence, even the most microscopic, lies the entire universe - provided we lend him our ear and let his intimate music carry us away. And, with elegance and mischief, that's what Voyou manages to do. Change the world with music. Let it resonate for a long time.
