Five Acts You Can’t Afford To Miss At We Love Green 2024

The super-chic Parisian event returns...

Reigning as one of the leaders of the French summer program, We Love Green is based in the picturesque Bois De Vincennes in Paris and delivers a myriad of artistic, DJ-led sets from some of the biggest names in music from May 31st – June 2nd. This year? Skepta, SZA, Burna Boy, Peggy Gou and Kaytranada will all be in attendance at the eco-conscious festival.

Rooted in raising awareness of our environmental crisis and powered by 100% renewable energy, We Love Green is known as much for its sustainability credentials as it is for its dynamic, stellar line-ups. With climate activism at its heart, the festival serves all food and drink plastic free, showcases art installations which highlight the climate crisis and even offers key talks from notable French activists within that space. And that’s without mentioning the food, as the festival will be hosting an incredible line-up of exclusively vegetarian food traders who are selected by a jury led by world-renowned chef Alain Duccasse, the first ever chef to have three restaurants in separate cities with three Michelin stars each.

The eclectic, electrifying lineup has previously included Little Simz, Bon Iver, Migos and more and this year the genre-spanning line-up stretching to all four corners of the globe with hip-hop, R&B, dance and indie megastars all in attendance. The weekend is set to be an unforgettable one and with that in mind, here are Clash’s five acts to watch at We Love Green.

Sherelle

The East London born DJ, perhaps best known for her BBC Radio 6 Music show on Saturday nights, always delivers a stellar dancehall set. With jungle and rave influences, Sherelle is tectonic behind the decs. Expect a genre-bending, uplifting performance stretching across decades.

Crystal Murray

Born and raised in Paris, Crystal Murray is an artist that refuses to be defined, blending neo-soul, funk, jazz, hyper-pop and more in her eclectic, electrifying music.

An artist who relishes being on stage, Crystal not only offers stylish, engaging sets, but is gloriously vulnerable on stage, leaving her heart and soul out there. Expect soulful music, effortlessly stylish outfits and an opportunity to connect with Crystal’s glittering personality.

Shygirl

With music belonging to the depths of the clubs, Shygirl is a DJ, singer and rapper who will certainly bring the sunshine to Paris. Having done everything in the past year from performing at British Vogue’s party in collaboration with Tiffany & Co and winning the MOBO Award for Best Dance/Electronic Act, 2024 has been a big year for the East London artist. Expect vibrant rhythms and music to feel like the main character.

Declan McKenna

An unexpectedly indie addition to the lineup, Declan McKenna is a heavyweight in British indie music. Having performed regularly at Reading and Leeds festival and Glastonbury, Declan knows how to confidently put on a set to compliment the summer sunshine. With his Elton John-like charm and upbeat melodies, he’s is the perfect addition to We Love Green’s lineup and isn’t one to miss.

Kaytranada

The unofficial king of summer music, Kaytranada is truly one of the greatest live performers out there right now. With a busy summer schedule ahead of him, the DJ, singer and rapper will be headlining All Points East and Parklife this summer so make sure to get down to see his headline set – it’ll be one to remember.

We Love Green runs between May 31st – June 2nd.
