INTERVIEW WITH

head of artistic direction

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO ME IS THE HUMAN BEING

A very busy and special performer who’s perpetually between two plane flights, Kely Starlight has foundhis perfect playground at the Folie Douce. His provocative look and style have been at the head of artistic direction at Folie Douce since 1996.

KELY, CAN YOU TELL US, WHEN DID THE CONCEPT OF OUTDOOR CLUBBING COME TO LA FOLIE DOUCE?

We started organizing festive afternoons for La Folie Douce clients in 2004, clubbing concept officially started in 2007. It is therefore for the past 10 years that we have been continuously developing our ideas, so that our show is attractive every year.

WHAT DOES LA FOLIE DOUCE MEAN TO YOU?

I am proud of everything we have been able to create so far. It's amazing to see how all the crazy ideas we have had over the years are now part of the DNA of La Folie Douce. If I had to describe La Folie Douce in 5 ethos: party, family, human contact, good music and most importantly good atmosphere, season long.

WHAT IS BEING THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR OF LA FOLIE DOUCE?

I have been the artistic director of La Folie Douce for 10 years now. We are always changing, creating fashions and progressing. We are always developing new concepts for our clients.

WHAT MAKES LA FOLIE DOUCE SO SPECIAL FOR YOU?

The most important thing still for me is the people. You can have the most beautiful spot in the most beautiful place, the atmosphere that you feel at La Folie Douce always comes from people. That's why every year, I work hard to find the best artists, with a strong interaction with our guests. I have a great team, people come to see Kely, however also the artists.

CAN YOU IMAGINE LA FOLIE DOUCE IN 10 YEARS?

In 10 years La Folie Douce will be a major brand recognised beyond the French Alps. We started with a small mountain restaurant, now we have five restaurants perched at the top. We make thousands of people happy every year. Next year we will be opening two new Folie Douce, and we don't want to stop there!
