One of the most famous concert halls in Paris, L’Olympia is a favorite venue for French and international artists alike. In 2017, L’Olympia hosted over 250 public and private events, including a growing number of major events.
L’Olympia maintains its policy of addressing a wide variety of audiences, without compromising the venue’s DNA. Performance highlights from 2017 range from artists currently lighting up the urban music scene and drawing younger concertgoers, such as French rappers MHD and Slimane, to headliners like Sting, or the American rock group LCD Sound System.
L’Olympia hosted the event held by France Inter radio station for the Fête de la Musique, France’s annual music celebration, and its third Nuit du Rugby. Home furnishing chain Conforama chose L’Olympia to celebrate its 50th anniversary, while Reebok transformed the venue into a giant fitness center for its Reebok Les Mills event.
In 2017, L’Olympia launched a new website to highlight the calendar of shows and incorporated an easy-to-use ticketing service. It has built a strong social media presence on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
L’Olympia now manages a small adjacent restaurant where artists and the audience can go after the show, to carry on the tradition.
