This back-to-school season festival is a major event of Dijon : during ten days, we propose more than thirty shows in various places in Dijon and the surrounding areas.
Our aim is to create a convivial event, that is why we are also proposing some free concerts, some shows for school students or for the prisonners of the House of Detention of Dijon.
During the last week-end of the event, we create a village of the festival near the Port du Canal and we turn this place into a friendly spot where the citizens can discover worldwide artists and cultures.

A focus on our past events
Mégaphone was an event created by two associations in 2009 : Zutique Productions and Why Note. The two of them wanted to promote a new generation of artists who can’t be classified. Musicians who refuse labels, and who claim transversal practices. Mégaphone was a festival which favourised creation and alternative approaches.
A festival focused on curiosity and discovery.
Made In was a festival which took place at the archeological museum of Bibracte. It gathered musicians, authors, poets, and a lot of other artists who invited the audience to discover new cultures. Each year, this event revolved around a different country : Maroc in 2007, Mali in 2006, Brasil in 2005 and India in 2004.
This festival allowed the audience to participate to conferences, debates, workshops, film projections… An event which defended the diversity of cultural exchanges and encouraged meetings.
LA CASBAH BOUTARIC
La Casbah Boutaric was a participative event set up between 2007 and 2013, at the bottom of our block, in a popular neighbourhood of Dijon. The purpose of this festive event was to allow the residents to meet artists and practice or discover various activities.
Every two years, Repérages took place at the archeological museum of Bibracte. Each edition, this festival focused on an european metropole : Budapest in 2005, Prague in 2007, Istanbul in 2009, Barcelone in 2011 and Marseille in 2013. This festival showed the cultures of those cities through music, visual arts, cinema, literature, archeology and more.

From 2007 to 2014, Zutique Productions and another association, Octarine Productions, organized the Human Beatbox Festival. This unusual event was the first one in Europe to focus on this new kind of music. We invited a lot of international artists, through concerts, creations, masterclasses and performances.
