Now in its 8th year, MIDI festival has become somewhat of a mecca for music lovers who have a certain infatuation with the lavish beaches of South France. This year MIDI hosts an all-embracing lineup of talent, from the folk-falsetto god Bon Iver to electronic chameleon SBTRKT. What’s more is the enthralling locations where artists will be performing; with Future-Garage/House outfits Disclosure, Pearson Sound and 123MRK playing at the core of a pine forest under the stars till the morning, whilst Almanarre Beach (the windsurfing capital of the France) and Hyères racecourse take care of the rest.
