Lyon, 19 June 2019
OL Groupe and Olympia Production, a subsidiary of Vivendi, are pleased to announce the creation of a new annual music festival.
This festival will be named “Felyn” and will be held for the first time on 19 and 20 June 2020 at Groupama Stadium. The programme will be announced at the end of 2019.
A joint venture called OL Production is being formed to organise and manage the festival, which will be a major event promoting the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.
Ownership of OL Production will be shared equally between OL Groupe and Olympia Production. The Chairman will be appointed by OL Groupe and the Chief Executive by Olympia Production. A board of directors will be created and composed of representatives of the two shareholders.
OL Production will organise the festival and will rely on the expertise of each shareholder, in particular that of OL Groupe in organising major events and that of Olympia Production as a well-known festival producer.
