For this 2024 edition of the Nuit des Musées, the Planète Rouge association invites you to an open-air musical evening on the magnificent terrace of the Red Cross Museum. The evening will be devoted entirely to urban music, and R&B in particular. Before a fiery DJ set by the artists of the collective, two promising talents will take to the stage for live performances under the reddish glow of the sunset:

  • João Pi, a talented Parisian singer-songwriter, will be bringing us his unique take on R&B.
  • Mibsy, the rising star of Geneva R&B, will be offering us a magical moment that is 100% local

Planète Rouge is an association that seeks to promote and develop urban culture in an alternative form through cultural events. The association's aim is to offer events in a welcoming and inclusive space, giving young people access to quality events at affordable prices and without discrimination. As the urban genre is relatively abstract, we believe it ranges from Rap to Dancehall, Trap to Jersey Club, R&B to Pop, Drill to Jungle or Hip-hop to Afrobeat. Over the past few years, the collective has organised a number of events that have proved popular with the public, demonstrating the need for a platform at the intersection between urban music culture and the values promoted by alternative culture.
