The festival

Since its creation in 2011, Gossipskate supports and vibrates for the ROLLER DANCE phenomenon. The association has been promoting this discipline through its skating school for 9 years now.
Gossipskate, at the time in partnership with the Collectif la Main which emerged from the Main Jaune (mythical roller-rink of the 80s left abandoned and resurrected by the said group) creates from its origin strong links with Rollerdance skaters.
The idea of a Roller Party germinated in response to the strong demand from Parisian skaters. Jean-Marc, a member of both structures, creator of the label Onwheelz and of the party of the same name, has been a reference in the genre since 2007.

This is the starting point of a constantly renewed collaboration around the ONWHEELZ parties: from the Main Jaune to the Grande Halle de La Villette or the Bellevilloise, via the Aérosol, the Ground-Control, the Point-Ephémère, the Halle Carpentier and the Generator: roller parties take over trendy places and inspire the world of Parisian nightlife. A more complete format is then needed: that’s how the PARIS ONWHEELZ FESTIVAL was born in 2016, a 4-day event combining parties, a roller-dance competition, a musical hike, workshops and friendly get-togethers, bringing together many European and international roller-skaters who are actors of this new culture.
These skaters are in search of high-quality festive events to gather around their passion. This fourth edition is particularly awaited in the microcosm of roller-dance since it combines the magic of Paris with the roller party at the beginning of the beautiful days!
