News has been spreading fast that beloved Parisian electronic spot Concrete has been threatened with closure.
The club is regarded as one of Europe's finest house and techno destinations, counting the likes of Shlømo, Antigone, Francois X, Leo Pol and Deena Abdelwahed in its family.
A regular fixture in DJ Mag's Top 100 Clubs poll, and one of our favourite clubs in breathtaking natural locations, the dance music world has responded with outrage at the prospect of the institution being shuttered.
Names such as Matrixxman, Paul Woolford, Anthony Parasole, Dekmantel, Chris Liebing, dBridge, fabric, DJ Nobu, Roman Flügel, Rex Club and Paris deputy mayor Frédéric Hocquard are amongst those voicing support and sharing a Change.org campaign to save the club, which currently has a dispute with the owners of the barge it occupies.
The petition had garnered almost 10,000 signatures within a day of launching.
Like many of you, we've had some great times at @ConcreteParis – their closure would be a crying shame for Paris & the wider scene. Solidarity with our French friends, let's hope the barge can remain here to stay #ConcreteParisSupport pic.twitter.com/YAKFPk6KK0— Dekmantel (@dkmntl) May 22, 2019
Lost count of how many amazing nights I've experienced at Concrete. Don't let this institution disappear. Please sign the petition and help them out if you can. https://t.co/N4weY9B983— MATRiXXMAN (@MATRiXXMAN) May 21, 2019
