A nice place to be.
Starting just after the Bastille Day, the French National Day, IMA 2022 would take place in a very pleasant period.
After the closing of the international jazz festival "Jazz à Vienne" (30 km from Lyon), you can enjoy the warm evenings of July in another ancient theater with the "Nuits de Fourvière" festival -- rock, classical music and drama.
In July, you can also follow the "Tour de France", the famous bicycle race, and, perhaps, experience live the arrival of a stage in Lyon or attend a mountain stage during the passage through the Alps near Lyon.
Every summer in Lyon "Tout l’monde dehors " (everybody outside) celebrates summer by bringing together more than 200 artistic and participatory events to offer beautiful moments of relaxation and conviviality, completely free and open to all.
Outdoor cinema sessions, in the Institut Lumière or in many other places in the city. Initiation to dance with Cuban salsa, Argentine tango, Forro, kuduro merengue or another. Music, feet in the grass with the rendezvous of music such as "Jeudis des musiques du monde" in the Jardin des Chartreux or "Dimanches de l’île Barbe". And impromptu meetings with street theater, readings, storytellers or musical walks to discover the city otherwise.
