FRANCE – Magic Garden & Defacto Summer: a very successful third edition
This year, Defacto, the Public Establishment management, facilitation and promotion of La Defense, asked Magic Garden to design, produce and program Summer Defacto. A third successful edition under the motto “US”.
With two new strategic locations, Place de La Défense and the Esplanade in front of Bassin Takis, Defacto Summer relaunched the festivities from July 16th to August 23rd, 2015.
Every year until 2017, Defacto Summer will invite a foreign business district allowing many employees and residents to broaden their horizons. This summer, the city of New York was in the spotlight.
More than 60,000 visitors, nearly double compared to the previous edition, came to enjoy 150 free events: Swedish gym, arts and crafts workshops, language workshops, cooking workshops … there were also 14 food trucks and 6 food-corners. Music was definitely not forgotten, with 22 live performances (DJ sets, dance, graffiti, musical, improv …) and 8 concerts.
