Meet us at the Eole Factory Festival 2022
An eclectic programme
The third edition of the Éole Factory Festival brings a festive wind to the area: professionals and amateurs alike gather around the omnipresent wind instruments. Éole Factory offers an eclectic programme on the Ile l'Aumône; internationally renowned artists and up-and-coming performers rub shoulders; jazz and contemporary music follow one another, and sometimes even combine.
We'll find Deluxe, André Manoukian, Michel Jonasz, Daniel Zimmermann but also Guillaume Perret, Laurent Bardainne and Tigre d'eau Douce, Pierre Bertaud du Chazaud...
More than twenty concerts, featuring brass and wind instruments, make music accessible to all, while artistic practices are encouraged in the instrument makers' village.
The festival village
Eole Factory is also an OFF festival, an opportunity to highlight the extraordinary pool of professional musicians and enlightened amateurs in our region. It is a village where you can eat, share and exchange. It is an event that contributes to the development of art, the strengthening of networks and cultural diversity.
Henri SELMER Paris will therefore be present at the instrument makers' fair. From children to families, from the curious to musicians, the public will be able to:
- Discover how an instrument is made
- Learn about the history of instrument makers in the Mantois and surrounding areas
- Receive advice from musical instrument makers
- Admire archive images of factories and period instruments
- Discover the professions surrounding instruments
In addition, the village is expanding this year with a new space for instrumental practice. In collaboration with the CRD of Mantes-la-Jolie, you will be able to discover the disciplines present at the conservatory and attend instrument demonstrations.
A playful and educational area has also been designed for the pleasure of children. The programme includes a reading area, a headphone listening area, a make-up workshop...
