Umlaut Festival 2022

After two years without an audience, the Umlaut Festival comes back from April 22 to 24 2022 in the unusual setting of the Shakirail, a creative oasis at the heart of Paris! The musicians of the Umlaut collective will present their latest discoveries and new musical complicities, and will meet their accomplices, the visual artist  from the Shakirail.
