 The residency was hosted by Radio Campus Orléans, one of the radio stations of the Radio Campus network. The network itself was founded in 1996 and is shared by over 20 different radio stations all over France. Hop Pop Hop is a festival organized by the Radio Campus network and Astrolabe in the city of Orléans. This year's edition was its seventh iteration, held on the 16th and 17th of September. It lasted for mere two days, held at four venues, and hosted more than 50 live acts.

Cecilia reports for Radio Popolare

Arrival in Orléans one day prior to the beginning of the festival was an opportunity to take some time to explore the beautiful city with proper french vibes and a light, bright and positive atmosphere, where modern and medieval perfectly match together. Our host Salome brought us to visit "Le Cent Huit", where Chloe showed us around. A former chocolate factory from the 19th century now contains several aggregative associations for young people, but we've also visited L'Astrolabe which aims to make contemporary music accessible to everybody. More about interesting lectures, record digging, the visit of Radio Campus Orleans and the experience of the festival can be heard in the report.
