Famous club in Paris, Concrete has been threatened with eviction after the owners of the barge that keeps the venue afloat on the banks of the Seine refused to renew the club’s license.
Concrete is actually a three-floor boat that plays host to the best house and techno acts from the world and stands for one of the best clubs in the world. The club acquired a late-night license in 2017, meaning the special Samedimanche events take place over 28 hours from Saturday to Monday.
According to Concrete spokesman, the barge owners are “suffocating” the club with “an irrational rent increase in recent months” and refusing them “the possibility of buying the place” for reasons that still remain unknown.
In order to combat the risk of closure, Concrete has created a Change.org petition to help their cause. “The battle is now beginning to keep Concrete on the scene of Parisian nightlife and to ensure that the musical culture that we share with all of you can continue to be expressed in full,” writes the club.
