After two editions canceled due to health crisis and an edition disrupted by heavy rains and violent storms in the Paris region, We Love Green takes its revenge.
The names of the first artists who will participate in the 2023 edition of the festival have just been revealed.
And while Pomme, OrelSan, Dinos, PLK, Lomepal, and even Gazo are frequently announced at other festivals this summer, English rapper Little Simz is a prime take.
His latest album,
No Thank You
, released in December 2022, goes against all practices, as a big thumbs up to the music industry.
Either a release on a Monday and not a Friday, a day dedicated by the music business to a broadcast.
And this, without being preceded by a single single or a promotional campaign as is customary.
His first clip was over ten minutes long, actually mixing clips from different titles and their associated videos.
“Little Simz reminds me of Kae Tempest (another British maverick artist), not on the instrumental part but on the extremely dense flow. The rebellion, clearly, is on their side”

, explained at the time, Luc Broussy, director of the musical magazine Magic, to AFP.
Veteran American rapper Pusha T is also one of the nuggets of the delivery, as is another ghost, Jack Johnson, a former American pro surfer who has embraced a folk career.

In 2019, during its last edition in optimal conditions, the festival, very concerned about the environment, welcomed 80,000 people.
This year We Love Green hopes for an undisturbed return.
He therefore returns from Friday June 2 to Sunday June 4, in his lair in the Bois de Vincennes, with a poster that allows you to meet heavyweights from French festivals and other rarer artists in France.
