Roi Soleil le Bal!

Party night with Frenglish pop & a dash of queer glitter

Roi Soleil (NL), IZAE (FR) + DJ Darling Peter / Hoax le beau

Roi Soleil le Bal! is a Rotterdam party night in Roodkapje with French singer-songwriter IZAE as support act and DJ afterparty. What would a royal ball à la Versailles look like anno 2024; but queer, genuinely fun and in raggedy Rotterdam? Like this! After singles Fou, Monsieur Baudelaire and Chien, Roi Soleil’s entire EP ‘A La Lumière’ will be presented with a new show together with his live band.

Roi Soleil makes ‘Frenglish pop with a dash of queer glitter’. The self-love universe of the Rotterdam Sun King is sprinkled over his peuple in a heroic party trip to the light. Roi Soleil’s personal pop hits are about self-love, identity, Baudelaire’s existentialism, wanting a dog and adolescent grief. Inspired by the greatest pop icons of all time, a boy from the Brabant village of Oud-Gastel gives all the life energy he has to fill your soul with love. Allez c’est parti!

Roi Soleil, with Club Gewalt and O., received the Nieuwe Makers Regeling of Fonds Podiumkunsten.

“Put your glitter suit on and go. Roi Soleil has been writing new songs all year and the results are fantastic. These evenings at Roodkapje will be géniale, magnifique et formidable and you are going to feel it in your body for weeks to come.” – Anne van de Wetering, festival dramaturge O.
