Opening its doors at the beginning of July, Centrale93 is a new 1,000-capacity collaborative project from Paris nightclub Chapelle XIV and Yoyaku – a label, record store and booking agency based in the city.
Centrale93 is an “ephemeral place of arts and life”, located in the Saint-Denis area of the city. The new venue is part of a drive to rehabilitate a brownfield area of the French capital – an area previously used by the industrial sector for many years.
Already boasting an impressive lineup of booked artists, Centrale93 will play host to Ricardo Villalobos, Dyed Soundorom, rRoxymore, Deena Abdelwahed and many more.
“In March 2020, our biggest event was supposed to take place, featuring our entire Yoyaku roster as well as Ricardo Villalobos,” promoter Benjamin Belaga told RA. “It was one of the first events in Europe to be rescheduled because of the pandemic. We have since then been searching for an outdoor venue to reschedule this party.”
“By chance, this wasteland in Saint-Denis, bordering Paris, was suited to hold musical events. We have the chance to take it over for the upcoming months, and we plan to make the most out of it!”
