The PolyKromies of Sarcelles: a new festival to reaffirm the urban reality of the city.
The City of Sarcelles is organizing its first festival in Place de France from July 22 to 25. As an expression of the town's strong ambition to enhance its multicultural reality, the PolyKromies will bring together classical music, hip hop, soul, groove, African haute coiffure, gospel, Arabo-Andalusian and Hebrew singing over four days. It is an invitation to meet again, after the particular context of these last months, around a moment of artistic sharing resolutely festive and participative.
The Delegate for Urban Cultures, Eric Checco, director, used to major international events, from New York to Washington, through Barcelona and the Stade de France, was entrusted by Patrick Haddad, mayor of Sarcelles, the organization of this festival that will take place at the foot of buildings in Place de France. On the programme: Renaud Capuçon & Lausanne Soloists, with an appearance by hip hop dancers Playmo, Evid3nce and Sarcellite (crossing of classical music and urban dance), Afro Festival with Association Flow & Olilor Coiffure (crossing of African arts with music, fashion wax, high hairstyle, beauty and fitness), BlackFoxy with the Drummers for Peace (with the sponsorship of UNESCO), Chérubins Gospel (crossing of the 3 religions with gospel, Arab-Andalusian, and Hebrew chants)

The PolyKromies of Sarcelles, a festival in the form of a great bridge between peoples. These four days of music, dance, meetings and discoveries will rhyme with sharing, conviviality, reunion and will allow the crossing of the glances, the cultures and the horizons. "The Sarcelles PolyKromies Festival was born of a strong desire of the town. It finds in the multiple cultures of the city a way to weave new links and to assert its urban reality. This first Place de France event is also a great opportunity to affirm our ambition: to put culture back at the heart of our priorities over the next six years. Initiated by the Delegation for Urban Cultures, it is in fact part of various actions that go in this direction: the rehabilitation of the Flanades cinema, the creation of a Pôle Ressources des Cultures Urbaines and the creation of spectacular works of street art accessible to all inhabitants", says the Mayor of Sarcelles, Patrick Haddad.
