The Positive Urban Festival 2021 edition
The Positive Urban Festival aka PUF was born out of the desire to create the 1st urban, altruistic, and positive festival to fight against inequalities and discriminations. We believe that this event can only reinforce what we have been working for more than 20 years : give the possibility to everyone to take their destiny into their own hands and become the master of their future, regardless of their social class or origin 👊
With expert speakers and committed artists, the Positive Urban Festival will raise public awareness around the four dimensions of the positive economy: ecological, social, democratic, and economic. This festival has multiple goals :
- Create a dialogue with numerous artists and professionals who carry social and solidarity values but above all who wish to start a conversation for a more positive world.
- Promote a positive society through concrete examples of positive actions that can be deployed on a large scale for a thorough transformation of society.
- Raise awareness among new generations through different topics all related to the four pillars of the positive economy and our empirical work, i. e. equal opportunities, ecology, and entrepreneurship.
2️⃣ A Positive Market that will highlight the entrepreneurs that Positive Planet accompanies every day in the creation of their positive businesses 🤩
3️⃣ A concert of committed artists 🎉

IAM was born in 1989 thanks in particular to Philippe Fragione, better known under the pseudo-Akhenaton. The group relies on sharp texts projecting realism under a veil of oriental culture, catchy funky music, and a certain self-derision.
With thousands of album sales, IAM has no less than 8 albums, the latest of which, Revolution, was released in 2017.
Coming from working-class neighborhoods, Kery James has always defended the idea that no one was condemned to failure, regardless of their social background.
Rapper, poet, novelist, essayist, screenwriter, director, and filmmaker, Abd Al Malik grew up in a low-income city project in Strasbourg (Neuhof). The French artist is the only hip-hop artist who won four consecutive times the Victoires de la Musique awards for each of his solo albums.
His career as an artist is atypical, going from the subway to a web series "J'irai chanter chez vous", from opening acts for Orelsan, Claudio Capéo, Gael Faye, IAM to tours in Morocco, Brazil, Colombia, Iraqi Kurdistan... From the Eurockéennes in Belfort to Solidays, from André Manoukian's living room for a sweet piano-vocal session to writing workshops he leads in prisons... Listening to him live is going with him on surprising and sometimes rocky paths, far from the earth, taking a step back, dreaming of hazards... we assure you that you won't get bored.
Three years after "24 Clara", "Ego" and "Hollywood", tracks from their first album (Hollywood, 2018), thanks to which we discovered the ambitious and original universe with pop-hip-hop-electro accents of the group Billet d'humeur, the 4 singer-songwriters, with their sensitive pen and communicative energy, are back.
Currently, in the studio recording their new songs which should be released in 2021, the 4 troublemakers, discovered in the corridors of the Parisian subway and recently highlighted on TikTok during the lockdowns thanks to their "confined covers", are again ready to make people talk about them !
