How do I get there?
The main festival locations are in the Confluence district, at the southern point of Lyon between the Rhone and Saone rivers.
The Saint-Exupéry Airport is a major Easyjet platform : Lyon is connected to over 30 cities including Berlin, Brussels, London, Rome, Toulouse, Nantes, Nice, Milan and Madrid.

To get to the festival, we recommend go by either the Part Dieu station or the Perrache station (the closest station to the festival sites) to get to Confluence 2015 (Nuits Sonores + European Lab).
From either of these two stations, you can take the tram T1: Direction Montrochet ? Stop Montrochet
The Rhônexpress tram connects the airport to Lyon's Part-Dieu Station in 30 minutes. For further details: www.rhonexpress.fr
