Villette Sonique is an annual 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 usually held the last week of May.[1]

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

The festival started out as a two-day event in 2003 that featured Coil, LCD Sound System, The Bug, DJ Food and others.
