The Palais Nikaia: a temple of contemporary music

art & culture

Bordering the Var River like a big crab, five minutes away from the bay, the Nikaia Palace is Nice's multi-purpose concert hall.

Don't miss this architectural monument inaugurated at the beginning of the 21stcentury, whose lines evoke the wings of a seabird. Performances by the greatest French and international voices in modern music are held here. From Cold Play and Depeche Mode to Pink Floyd and David Bowie, as well as musicals, comedies, sporting events, and circuses, the programming is breath-taking. The enthusiasm of the crowds for these shows, as exceptional as they are inspiring, is predictably noisy the venue has a capacity of up to 9,000 spectators. The palace is adjacent to the Charles Ehrmann stadium and, in summer, the two merge to form an open concert space, which looks something like a crab from the sky. Having a fabulous time here in communion with your favourite musical artists is a great way to top off a day at the beach.
