a festival turned towards tomorrow

Inspired by the Sustainable Development Goals and a player in a world in transition, LaSemo is built around values.

Pedagogy through action

Prefer action to confrontation. Building a utopia for 3 days. Try, fail, try again.


Take into account environmental, social, cultural, intergenerational, civic and economic issues. Building a reality at the heart of these concerns.


Strengthen social ties, create meeting places and exchange, build a framework of well-being for everyone


Respecting others and differences, respecting nature and the environment, respecting the world around us to improve living together.

Festive and discovery

To arouse curiosity. Encouraging discovery. Celebrating together and bringing people together. Nurturing wonder.


Carrying and embodying an ideal and change. Continuous improvement. Living and sharing our values while respecting others and living together.

Finance for the project

Build a sustainable, independent and financially sound project. Dedicate resources and financial means to improving the project, without the aim of profit or enrichment.

A bearer of meaning

For 15 years, we have been providing comprehensive sustainability solutions for the industry and for audiences. We deal with cultural, environmental (mobility, food, waste, scenography, energy, awareness), social (accessibility, gender…), economic (suppliers and local spin-offs…) and citizen and intergenerational participation issues.

With regard to this last point, LaSemo is also looking to the audiences of tomorrow by offering a first quality cultural experience to thousands of children each year, for whom cultural offerings outside of school are too rare.

As a meeting place

With figures from UNAF – France indicating that adults spend an average of 8 hours a day in front of a screen (including more than 3 hours for leisure) and that children aged 3 to 7 spend 1h56 on this activity, it’s clear that the psychological and democratic consequences of isolation are on the rise.

This is why LaSemo is built around the encounter between individuals, cultures and generations and the sharing of emotions. Indeed, the location of the site, the shows and concerts organized, as well as the activities proposed encourage social ties and reconnection with life.

As a place of wonder

With its carefully thought-out setting, scenography, layout and programming, festival-goers can take the time to contemplate the artistic offerings with all their senses and switch off.

We attach great importance to the comfort of the public and to the quality of the reception, and we pay attention to every detail of the organization to allow them to fully enjoy the experience.

As a place of experimentation and commitment

We are proud of LaSemo as a living laboratory. We innovate with cultural forms by offering concerts and performances that are both innovative and daring. Ouraudiences respond with enthusiasm, curiosity and goodwill, offering them a platform to trust their work.

We also try to implement sustainability measures with striking successes (sometimes adopted by the whole sector) and failures, sources of learning and lessons for the future .
