Hadra Trance Festival 2024

Hadra Trance Festival 2024
The Hadra Trance Festival is an adventure in its own right, to be experienced in its entirety. We work all year long to offer you 4 unforgettable days of celebration, disconnected from our daily lives.

The festival format allows us to think and create a complete and unique experience, and we invite you to live it to the full.

It’s not just a question of consuming the party for an evening, but of discovering and letting yourself be carried away by the universe we’ve concocted for you.

Beyond the musical program, there’s a whole host of other things to discover: take your time to stroll around and take in the many surprises that litter the site, discover the art gallery, take part in a workshop, attend a conference, meet new people and, above all, let yourself be surprised by the magic of the moment.

Born in 2005 in the mountains, the Hadra Trance Festival is a unique event in terms of its organization, the values it defends, but above all by its eclectic and multidisciplinary program that mixes musicians, video artists, visual artists and performers.

Over the years, the festival has become the biggest celebration of psychedelic trance culture in France and is now recognised as a reference in Europe and throughout the world.
Over the years, the festival has conquered the hearts of an ever-growing number of festival-goers.
On the banks of a lake, at the Plan d’Eau de Vieure, in the Allier; 4 days of celebration, 4 stages and more than 150 artists with exceptional musical diversity during 72 hours non-stop attract 8000 people from all over the world every year.

The Hadra Trance Festival is one of the only French festivals to have chosen to focus its programming on the different styles of psychedelic trance and the alternative aesthetics that have developed in parallel.

The mainstage, the true heart of the site, inspires admiration by its structure, its decoration and its programming essentially focused on the sub-genres composing the spectrum of psytrance music: progressive, dark-prog, psygressive, full-on, psychedelic, dark-psytrance and forest!

The alternative stage offers a wide range of electronic music developed in parallel with the different styles of psychedelic trance: techno, drum’n bass, hi-tech, dub, world music with the presence of traditional bands and formations that combine instrumental and electronic sounds.

Finally, a third stage acting as a “sound cocoon”: the Chill-Out, where the music is deliberately calmer and softer than on the other stages in order to create a floating and restful atmosphere.

Downtempo, ambient, psybass, electronica, psychill, glitch are as many styles that you can appreciate during this sound relaxation.

Stage design is a fundamental component of trance culture. The characteristics of these transformations allow festival-goers to be immersed in an immersed and fantastic universe.

Each year, the Hadra Trance Festival invites teams of decorators from the four corners of the world. Decorators, visual artists, video artists, painters…

The teams in charge of the decoration are as much expected guests by the public as the musicians, they strongly contribute to the festival’s so singular magic.

Each team has its own speciality: psychedelic canopy, custom scenography, high definition vjing, interactive installations and digital arts, wooden structures etc… In total, more than fifteen teams, professionals and voluntee
