TOGETHER AT THE OLYMPIA

– A BIG MUSICAL AND FUNDRAISING TELEVISION SHOW –

 

SINCE YOU CAN’T COME TO THE OLYMPIA, THE OLYMPIA IS COMING TO YOU

 
A number of artists, including Benjamin Biolay, Boulevard des Airs, Patrick Bruel, Claudio Capéo, Dadju, Thomas Dutronc, Camélia Jordana, Ninho, Catherine Ringer, Sofiane, Soolking and Tryo, have agreed to take part in ENSEMBLE A L’OLYMPIA (“Together at the Olympia”), a big festive evening of music held at the Olympia mythical venue in Paris. The event will be broadcast on Tuesday, June 9 at 9:15 p.m. on C8 and at 10:45 p.m. on CSTAR, on CANAL+ Africa on June 9 at 10.45 p.m., on Olympia TV on June 21at 8.30 p.m. and will also be available on myCANAL.

Since large gatherings are still banned, the Olympia hall is coming to you! Over several days, the artists will come one by one in a venue closed to the public, under extremely strict health and safety conditions, to record an event full of surprises. The artists will sing on stage but also in all the other magical and lesser-known areas of the Olympia, giving you a peek inside. They all want to take part in this special show to share a message of hope and vigilance, at this time when, more than ever before, artists need the support of the public and the public needs music.

The complete line-up for the show will be released shortly. All the artists are volunteering their time and performance and the show will be an opportunity to raise funds for the association Emmaüs France. Crédit Mutuel, Olympia’s long-standing partner, has also agreed to help produce this event with Riffx.fr, its dedicated music platform.

ENSEMBLE A L’OLYMPIA is an initiative of the Canal+ Group, L’Olympia, Olympia Production and Flab Prod. It is based on the shared conviction that culture, entertainment and all artists play an essential role during these difficult times. It is also a good illustration of how the Vivendi group, to which these different companies belong, has demonstrated its mobilization capacity.
