Villette Sonique is a yearly music festival in Parc de la Villette in Paris, France featuring a combination of experimental music, Noise rock, Electronic and other genres. The festival is most of the time held in the last week of May.

The festival has a daytime open air program which is free and evening in the two main concert halls of the musical venue in the parc (La Grande Halle). The festival grew from two days in the early years to five days nowadays. The first two editions were produced under the name "Feed Back", after that the name changed to the correct name Villette Sonique. Since the festival happens in May yearly, it features an overlap in its line up with Primavera Sound Festival and Bad Bonn Kilbi which takes place in the same weekend and All Tomorrow's Parties that takes place a week before both festivals.

The festival is now in its eighth year, starting out as a two-day event in 2003 that featured Coil, LCD Sound System, The Bug, DJ Food and others.
