One of the most famous concert halls in Paris, L’Olympia is a favorite venue for French and international artists alike.
In 2018, L’Olympia hosted 280 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 range from artists currently lighting up the urban music scene and drawing younger concertgoers, such as French rappers Lomepal and Eddy de Pretto, to headliners like Joan Baez and Ringo Starr to name but a few in 2018. L’Olympia hosted the event held by France Inter radio station for the Fête de la Musique, France’s annual music celebration, and the fourth Nuit du Rugby. Canal+ organized its third Canal Tour subscriber roadshow.
In April 2019, L’Olympia opened a second venue within its premises, la Salle de Billard, which was a billiard room built around 1900 in honor of King Edward VII before practically disappearing for several decades. This majestic, yet intimate venue with a capacity between 80 and 120 people, offers an additional stage for concerts and comedy performances.
L’Olympia now manages Le Petit Olympia, a small adjacent restaurant where artists and the audience can go after the show, to carry on the tradition.
