The Rocher de Palmer will open its doors this year in Cenon (just outside Bordeaux city) to provide another chance for locals to delve into some world music culture.
The entertainment arena contains two theatres (1,200 and 650 places), a gig hall (250 places), a workshop (20 places), a resourse centre and a bar and restaurant.
While waiting for its opening next September, the association ‘Musiques de Nuit’ who is responsible for programming the events at the Rocher de Palmer are putting on a series of concerts in lead up to the opening of the arena. The concerts will take place at the Château Palmer de Cenon (single price around €5) and ‘Hors les Murs’ for concerts organised in various places around Bordeaux : Rock School Barbey, Krakatoa, Fémina, Trianon, salle du Vigean, la Caravelle, etc.
The gigs are really tailored for the jazz, funk, world music loving crowd with most of the artists being from these genres.
Before the opening these concerts will provide a taste of what you’ll be able to see once the Rocher de Palmer opens for business.
