La Cité Fertile
Midway between an urban utopia and an experimental site, La Cité Fertile is a great place to meet and socialise, located on a former railway site just a stone’s throw from the Canal de l’Ourq.
Heading up the programme for three years, we have the Sinny & Ooko team successfully wielding projects like the Bar à Bulles(/fr/le-bar-a-bulles), the REcyclerie and the Pavillon des Canaux.
A transitional project before the construction of the future “eco-district” in Pantin, La Cité Fertile is organised around working and social areas bringing together companies, start-ups, public stakeholders and citizens sharing the same wish to build a positive, happy and sustainable future.
On 15 February, the Grande Halle of la Cité Fertile will host the first Midiminuit event, a daytime rave party with 12 hours of big electro sounds. The French Mixmag team piloting the project have assembled a hand-picked selection of seven big names on the French and world techno and EBM scene like Michael Amato a.k.a The Hacker, Dekmantel, De School, and François X for the Paris part.
This summer, on the huge 5,500 m2 site with its 200 trees and shrubs, come and play pétanque (French bowling), beach volleyball or ping-pong, read a book in peace in the shade, take the time to clear your mind and meditate in a hut, relish sandwiches, salads and grilled dishes made of organic or sustainably farmed products, and quaff a beer brewed on-site, sharing one of the large tables that are there to encourage friendly interaction.
