It's the biggest hall in the city! The Zénith Aréna is located in the conference and exhibition centre of Lille Grand Palais. It welcomes up to 7000 spectators and of course the biggest French and international stars such as Alain Souchon, Zazie, Muse, Snoop Dog... The arena also lends itself to shows for the general public such as the shows of Gad Elmaleh, Dany Boon... Or even the Pink Soldier.
Designed by the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas with Cecil Balmond and inaugurated in 1994, the Zénith Arena is a part of the cultural complex Lille Grand Palais which includes two other spaces: a congress center and exhibition halls. Rem Koolhaas surrounded himself with Renz van Luxemburg for the acoustic studies, dUCKS scéno for the scenography and Arup Group for the engineering studies. Its ability to seat up to 7,000 people makes it one of the largest venues in Lille. The closest métro station is Lille Grand Palais.
