Want to discover Art Nouveau and Art Deco off the beaten track and with a modern twist? That's what the ARTONOV festival offers its visitors. For this 6th edition, dance, performances and concerts will be hosted in a handful of varied venues such as Saint Cyr House (an Art Nouveau gem), L’Hectolitre (an atypical site) or Solvay Library, with its eclectic beauty. Whether it’s musical walks to the sound of a portable medieval organ; underground dance to the sound of EDM or jazz improvisation under the marble mosaics of the Solvay Library, each edition will present interdisciplinary creations around a chosen theme.

When? October
