Music continues to unite and to gather us, and so the show must go on. Les Plages Electroniques is making a strong comeback this year and the 12th edition promises many surprises, including a real festival village on the Palace Square, brand new afterparties at the Rotonde on Friday and Saturday till 4:30 am and more besides.
