Even a year after his last show in France, Aphex Twin might be announced for Rock en Seine 2019 very soon!

Friday morning, Parisians woke up to posters with Aphex Twin‘s logo and written “Rock en Seine” around the city. This is more than wild speculation because it is not the first time that the British producer announces a show that way. He did it for Coachella recently as well as for his show in New York, among others. Rock en Seine is actually announcing on Tuesday, so the timing is perfect.
