The festival general manager said of the upcoming Arctic Monkeys appearance: “We are delighted to have Arctic Monkeys back at the festival for our next edition and a France exclusive.
“After 16 years since their first album and two unforgettable concerts at Rock en Seine in 2011 and 2014, they have established themselves as one of the best bands of the moment and we can’t wait to present them to our festival-goers.
The band will release their seventh album in 2022. It will be their first since Hotel and Casino Tranquility Base.
