Huma Festival: between two concerts, a highly anticipated debate between Édouard Philippe and Fabien Roussel

  • 1 The headliners

  • Since last year, the Huma Festival has left La Courneuve to be held at the former air base 217, in Plessis-Pâté, in the Essonne department. Many groups will follow one another on the different stages of this festival organized by the newspaper L’Humanité. The three-day pass costs €60.

DJ Martin Solveig and singer Imany are there this Friday. Bigflo et Oli, Jeanne Added, La Femme, Bilal Assany, Mass Hysteria, Rebeka Warrior and even Médine are scheduled for Saturday. A concert will also be given to pay tribute to François Hadji-Lazaro, the singer from Pigalle, who died in February. On Sunday, there will be Angèle, Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine, Suzanne Vega, Les Fatals Picards and Zaho de Sagazan.

  • 2 Édouard Philippe in debate with Fabien Roussel

  • The Huma Festival is also an opportunity to taste specialties from all over France at the various stands run by communist activists… And to remake the world by talking politics until the end of the night!

    Debates and conferences are also organized in different spaces. And this year, a face-to-face meeting is particularly expected on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Agora, between Fabien Roussel, the national secretary of the Communist Party, and Édouard Philippe. The former Prime Minister, who once again became mayor of Le Havre, created his Horizons movement in 2021. He has just released a book, “Des places qui dit” (JC Lattès), and is increasingly setting out his milestones for 2027.

    “It’s an interesting debate on the ideas we hold, on the vision of France that we want to defend today and tomorrow,” Fabien Roussel said at the end of August at Sud Radio. And he underlined the importance in his eyes of maintaining a “left-right relationship” in the country.

  • 3 The boycott of a minister

  • Clément Beaune, the Minister of Transport, announced last Sunday that he would not come this year to protest against the presence of the rapper Médine, accused by some of having made anti-Semitic comments. “I’m not going to the Huma Festival. I was looking forward to debating with union representatives from the SNCF, like last year. I love debate, even when it’s rough. But I cannot endorse Medina’s presence at this event. The debate will resume, I am always open to it,” he wrote on his X account.

  • 4 Magistrates’ union: a presence that “exceeds” Dupond-Moretti

  • The Magistrates’ Union announced that it would be present at the Huma Festival for the first time in its history. He will notably take part in a round table on police violence. “It is an opportunity for us to participate in a weekend of exchanges and debates, to meet other organizations and unions and discuss the themes that are dear to us, justice and civil liberties,” explained Sarah Pibarot, judge in Paris and national secretary of the union.

    Wednesday evening, the Minister of Justice Éric Dupond-Moretti said he was “exasperated” by this initiative. “Since I have been a minister, I have witnessed, helplessly, a certain number of slip-ups,” he said, before giving the latest example, according to him: “The Magistrates’ Union has taken action and cause for the rioters.”
