SO FRENCHY SO CHIC – 2022 FESTIVAL DATES

TICKETS HERE

For 16 years, So Frenchy So Chic has bridged the cultural gap between Australia and France via a shared love of music, food and conviviality. 
So Frenchy So Chic began as Cartell Music, a Melbourne record label founded by French-Australian Jean-Francois Ponthieux, who dreamt of introducing contemporary French pop to Australian music lovers.

Van Gogh’s works have been exhibited and admired for over a century – but never like this.

Created by Grande Experiences, Van Gogh Alive gives visitors the unique opportunity to immerse themselves into Van Gogh’s artistry and truly venture into his world. Traditions of tiptoeing through silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar in quiet contemplation are forgotten as visitors find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined. From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and fragrance that has been called an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience.

Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life, giving visitors the sensation of walking right into his paintings, a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational. Adults and children delight in the super-scale show, viewing artworks from new angles and discovering unique perspectives. But don’t just take their word for it: experience it for yourself!
