Review: Frankophonik

 

As one of the most progressive nations in the world when it comes to music, France has a lot to shout about! Despite the language barrier that often holds them back from going international on vocalled tracks, the French have forged themselves a name as one of the leaders of Electro in its many forms. As well as that, there’s a thriving fan base and national music scene across many other genres like Reggae, grime, hip-hop, dubstep and more…

For anyone that’s been to the country or met a real fan from there, music is as much part of the French lifestyle as wine and cheese. To bridge the overly large gap between the anglo-french music divide there is a website called Francophonik, which allows you to discover and download a whole heap of new French music, as well as chat to other fans and they’re currently giving you the opportunity to win tickets for gigs and festivals and to share your French music discoveries.

A heavy weight competition currently running with Francophonik is giving you the chance to win tickets for the Rock en Seine Festival(The Seine is a famous river that runs through Paris), based just 10km from the capital. The three day festival from August 26 - 28 covers loads of different genres but in terms of hip-hop and grime there are some big name performances from Kid Cudi, Q Tip, Tinie Tempah and the crew that shot to fame in 2011; Odd Future (OFWGKTA).  I have already entered the competition via their facebook fan page. Having been to France a few times in recent years I know it’s going to be A LOT!
