It is a particularly strong electronic bill this year with Jarre..."

Surrounding the festival, JARRE will embark on a short tour visiting such cities as Dallas, Vancouver and Seattle.  He'll also return to Houston on April 10, where he last appeared back in 1986 performing a one-off city-scale concert celebrating NASA's 25th Anniversary. Over 1.3 million people gathered to share in a moving commemoration of the Challenger Mission setting a Guinness World Record.  The North American dates follows below.
