This is a very musical White Night 2021 Paris Philharmonie offers us to enjoy. Meet on Saturday October 2 to discover 5 music marathons mixing shows for children, choreographies, weightless night and drums.

The White Night is back in Paris on Saturday October 2, 2021 with many great ideas. For instance, music lovers can go to the Philharmonie de Paris to enjoy 5 music marathons for free performed from sunset to sunrise.

From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. / Conference Hall & Hall – Philharmonie: La Nuit des Petits

From 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., several bands will perform in turns to make you listen and enjoy music from many backgrounds. Seated or standing, motionless or moving, children and parents can share this musical break to the rhythm and sound of electronic machines, enchanting pop voices, and even instrumental music with a contemporary twist…


From 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. / Amphitheatre – Cité de la Musique: La Nuit Arachnéenne

For a one-man live performance, Nicolas Crosse will play with a skeleton made of strings held by plastic artist Nieto and composer Marco Suarez-Cifuentes – between choreography and concert!


From 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. / Musée de la Musique – Cité de la Musique: La Nuit Erotique

In the heart of the Musée de la Musique, a long night invites you to explore erotism to the sound of music via atypical creations, especially Embrase-Moi, a hot piece bringing dancers Kaori Ito and Théo Touvet and pianist Nathanaël Gouin together.


From 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. / Salle des Concerts – Cité de la Musique: La Nuit Ambient

Musical style particularly conducive to relaxation and dreaming, ambient is celebrated for a weightless night by five iconic feminine figures: Felicia Atkinson, Suzanne Ciani, Chloé, Kali Malone and Christina Vantzou.


From 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. / Pierre Boulez main room and Studio – Philharmonie: La Nuit de la percussion

Two tours for a night focusing on drums around the world (gamelan, taikos, txalaparta), as well as music from Africa, the Middle East, India and Brazil, along with contemporary music.
