St-Maurice – “Nuances Pop” Festival

Summer Festival

Nuances Pop

From June 24th to August 12th, Nuances Pop comes back to animate the Grand-Rue of Saint-Maurice, every Friday night, with a desire of lightness and dreams…

An unusual decoration
Soon an extravagant decoration will be installed in the Grand-Rue of Saint-Maurice; 30 giant dream-catchers elaborated by Saint-Maurice Tourism and made with the precious help of the Coffre Magique, of the Dzèbe and of the population of Agaun.
For almost 2 years, it was almost impossible for us to live lightly and let ourselves dream. Saint-Maurice Tourism has therefore decided to use this symbolism in the decoration of its summer activity. The population of Agaun was solicited for the search of manufacturing material and small hands to realize these dream-catchers of almost 1m of diameter.

8 dates instead of the usual 4
After 4 editions of the festival organized on 4 big evenings, the 5th edition of Nuances Pop was organized in a different format because of the pandemic to be able to spread the crowd on all the school vacations. This formula having seduced the cafe owners and restaurant owners of the city center, music will animate the Grand-Rue every Friday evening of the school vacations for this 6th edition of Nuances Pop.

New: a partnership with the Black Forest Afro Latino Festival
Wishing to promote the first edition of its “Black Forest Afro Latino Festival”, which will take place on July 15 and 16 at the Couvert du Bois-Noir in Saint-Maurice, the TESSIA Association has proposed a partnership with Saint-Maurice Tourism for the appearance of 2 music groups during the first evening of Nuances Pop on June 24. The Duo Absurdistan, mixing Colombian cumbia and Spanish rumba, as well as Madvellous & Précieuse, a collective rapper and slammer, will open the festivities of Nuances Pop before being programmed again in the Bois-Noir on Friday, July 15. Information and tickets on sale soon at www.tessia.org and at Saint-Maurice Tourism.
