Lyon’s Mirage Festival Announces End

After eight years of “promoting artistic innovation and digital creation” in and around Lyon, France, Mirage Festival calls it quits. “Since the beginning, Mirage Festival has encountered structural difficulties that we are not able to overcome anymore,” states artistic director Jean-Emmanuel Rosnet and team. This year, the festival was hit particularly hard: first by the pandemic—the 2020 edition was cut short by lockdown measures—and then by funding cuts. Mirage leaves a legacy of dynamic interdisciplinary programming that brought international talents such as Sabrina Ratté, Herman Kolgen, Quiet Ensemble, and Quadrature to the region.
