Saint-Cloud is an affluent, residential suburb of west Paris that's eerily quiet all year long-- until August hits, and the grassy expanse around the local park is flooded with people, tents and grill fire for Rock en Seine, Paris' massive outdoor summer rock festival. The 10th edition kicks off on August 24th, so if you're interested but haven't yet secured tickets, now's the time to try-- they sell like hotcakes.
Headlining acts this year include Green Day, Placebo, The Black Keys, The Dandy Warhols, Sigur Ros, and Bloc Party. Read our guide to Rock en Seine 2012 for the complete lineup, and to find out how to get your hands on tickets..
