Lans-en-Vercors, in the Isère department, is a low mountain village renowned for its ski resort. It is located in the heart of the Vercors Mountains, in one of the most beautiful regional natural parks in Europe. This setting helps makes the event exceptional and its ambiance entirely unique... And it is located only 30 minutes from Grenoble!

The word of the organizers

“In Arabic, the term “hadra” actually refers to a collective trance practiced during the ceremonies of religious brotherhoods in Morocco… Hadras fascinate both through their melodies and the beauty of their actual form. The tempo of the hadra starts off slowly, majestically, then it gradually incorporates faster and faster, mesmerizing rhythmic movements before reaching its apotheosis in a kind of ecstatic release…”
 

The 8th Hadra Trance Festival will be this apotheosis ­– the high point of our season and a crowning point for the work of over 500 volunteers, musicians, technicians, decorators and other performers who devote their time and energy each year to ensure that the festival takes place! After overcoming the bad weather in 2012 and a financial disaster in 2013, we have survived – in great part thanks to all of you and your support! Now, we are back and so hyped for a perfect finale in 2014! A finale, indeed – at least in Lans-en-Vercors. Just as we were tentatively starting to get back onto our feet financially, we recently lost our foremost supporter at the Town Hall of Lans. Jean-Paul Gouttenoire, who has backed us since our arrival in 2010, has unfortunately left his seat as Mayor to a newly elected official. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to him and his town council for letting us bring Hadra to life in the Vercors Mountains, and for his unrelenting support right to the end! The new town council has announced that it will work with us for the 2014 edition of the Festival, but – although it has acknowledged our professional status as event organizers and the support we receive from our institutional and organizational partners – it has informed us that it will not renew the Festival in the future.

We will do our utmost to ensure that a 9th edition takes place – we have already begun looking for a new venue (interested candidates take note!)… For now, 2015 remains a big question mark but we are nonetheless excited to invite you to Lans-en-Vercors one last time. More than ever, we’re counting on you to help give the perfect ending to this long run with a festival that is packed with novelty and new aspirations! Let’s make this 8th edition of the Festival a massive, final hurrah – the last “Hadra” of Trance-en-Vercors, the capital of our culture in France for the past 4 years! Although the future remains uncertain, let’s show those who would like to see us slip back into the mould of sterile culture that we are still here, numerous, and that nothing can make us stop dancing!
