The Hives at Rock en Seine 2007

The Rock en Seine festival is a three-day rock music festival, held at Domaine National de Saint-Cloud, the Château de Saint-Cloud's park, west of Paris, inside the garden designed by André Le Nôtre.

Name[edit]

The name is a pun, based on exactly the same pronunciation in French of the words "scène" meaning stage and Seine (the river separating Saint-Cloud from Central Paris after which the Hauts-de-Seine département is called).
