The Bustle Music Tempo Tour is officially over and the team is back in Paris. Time to tell you everything about how we spent our second week of music exploration in the northern part of France !
After two weeks of travelling, the #BMTT is officially over and the Bustle team is back in Paris. Altogether, we drove for 3500 kilometers and passed through 8 different cities to meet diverse actors from the music industry.
For the first part of the tour we danced at the Nuits Sonores in Lyon, organised gatherings with musicians and journalists in Montpellier and Marseille and discovered the jazz scene in Toulouse We finally stopped in Bordeaux to meet with diverse cultural actors, get interviewed on the radio and attend a festival hidden in the region’s backroads.

We hit the road again on Sunday evening to join Road Studio and Ludovic, Bustle Music’s co-founder, in Nantes. Cyrille got interviewed by our partners so that they’ll be able to present the platform in their webserie on how music can foster social ties. The following two days were spent meeting with cultural and tech organizations, such as La Fabrique and La Cantine Numérique. The objective was to prepare for the Web2day, a festival for professionals and technology-enthusiasts held for three days in this now renowned technology city.
On Wednesday morning, we drove to Rennes and met with Keur Eskemm, an association whose aim is to promote solidarity through creative projects. In the afternoon, we visited the Jardin Moderne, a cultural multi-space hosting organizations and music facilities along with proposing trainings and organizing cultural events.
At night, we met for a crepes with MC Joker in Saint Malo. This adventurer and multitask music lover has been on the platform since its early beginnings back in 2012 !
The day after, we started our drive back and stopped again in Rennes to have a drink with Le Collectif de la Marquise. They try to promote afro-american music by organizing concerts, master classes and other events.
Finally, we arrived back to Nantes to attend the Web2day. We listened to professional speakers on the issues of music and digital technology, got in touch with other start upers and got interviewed for TeleNantes. At the end of the day, we gave our own speech at Trempolino, a structure supporting new artistic talents. We presented our platform and explained how the fair streaming revolution will put the artist back at the centre of the music industry.
We’d like to thank all the very interesting people we met during our trip and the ones that helped us. We’re now back in Paris with our heads filled with new ideas and our bags full of new artists to introduce on the platform.
