Disquaire Day

The Institut français was, for the first time, associated with Disquaire Day by taking part in the production of a vinyl record presenting two key bands of the emerging French and British scene, La Femme and Stealing Sheep.
 
After four successful editions, Disquaire Day is, at the planetary level, one of the greatest event devoted to recorded music, and the only one to bring together all actors from the music channel.
 
in 2015, hundreds of brand new records and limited editions were made available at more than 200 independent record stores in 90 French cities. Truly a specificity in France, nearly 30 cities welcomed Disquaire Day Nights (closing concerts) with hundreds of artists to appear for live performances.

This event was supported within the scope of Tandem Paris-London 2015, implemented by the Institut français and the City of Paris, with the support of the City of London and the British Council.
 
 

La Femme and Stealing Sheep

 
La Femme achieving international success over the past years, the Institut français was able to accompany them on extraordinary tours of the Americas and Asia. This band, which won a “Victoire de la musique” award in the Stage Revelation category, has other projects already scheduled for 2016, especially in Scandinavia.
 

La Femme - Saisis la corde

As for Stealing Sheep, this is a trio of women originating from Liverpool who offer music with a bit of a psychedelic twist, indie pop music highly appreciated by the French. Back in France on several memorable dates in 2013, the British band will give a big concert Place de la République in Paris for Disquaire Day, the program to be provided in a few days.

Disquaire Day

 
In 2007, in the U.S. and the UK, a special day in favor of independent record stores was set up, called Record Store Day. From Blur to Muse, including Metallica, a host of artists participated in this day, offering, exclusively via independent networks, brand new musical pieces and records, or invested in special activities such as encounters or miniature concerts.
 
In 2011, CALIF (Club Action for French Independent Labels) naturally became associated with ‘‘Record Store Day’’ by setting up its French version, ‘‘Disquaire Day’’, inviting all actors from the world of music – artists, labels, distributors and, of course, record stores.
 
Disquaire Day – Record Store Day was organized in France by CALIF in partnership with American independent record store associations, Coalition of Independent Music Stores and the British Entertainment Retailers Association. CALIF is an association established in 2002 with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Communication in an effort to maintain and develop a network of independent record stores for a diversified offer. It provides financial and logistical aid to help set up points of sale as well as for record stores already in existence.
