There are more concerts in Paris on a daily basis than you could shake a baguette at. And really, why are you shaking that baguette anyway?
Big concert venues are all over town, from the modern Stade de France national stadium that packs in 80,000 screaming fans to the historic Olympia music hall in the 9th arrondissement that’s been blowing out speakers since 1889. Le Grand Rex is another big one, the largest cinema, theater, and live music venue trifecta in all of Paris with 2,800 seats.
Slightly smaller but still very impressive concert venues include La Cigalle, Le Bataclan, Le Showcase, and La Fleche d'Or, where the weekly lineup can vary from folk and acoustic to hip-hop, R&B, and reggae concerts. Sports arena Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy also frequently doubles as a concert venue, while hundreds of cool smoky underground clubs serve up jazz, blues, and indie rock from intimate stages all over town.
The DJ scene is equally vibrant at a number of these same institutions, with bumping dance clubs like Le Nouveau Casino hosting major DJ concerts, and then of course there’s the famous Paris cabaret theaters that also throw in lots of live music in-between their sultry burlesque shows. No matter what kind of live music you seek, Paris concerts will provide.
