Focus on clubs


Unlike the distribution of French nightclubs spread across the whole territory, electronic music (techno/house segment) venues are concentrated in the Île-de-France region which hosts over a third of the total offering. It is followed by the Pays-de-la-Loire and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur regions that host about one quarter of techno/house clubs.

Geographic distribution

Public capacity

The proportion of techno/house venues with a capacity of 1000 people or more is twice as large as the proportion among nightclubs in general. Also there are notably fewer small-sized venues among techno/house clubs.


Economics topics

Electronic music venues are mostly medium and large venues. The ratio of venues with a turnover over 1 million euros is 3 times larger among techno/house clubs.

Clubs with a specific techno/house sets have an economic model markedly different from the rest of the sector: they bear higher staging costs due to artists with national and international fame being programmed each week-end. In return their audience accepts paying higher entry fees. It is a live show economy, generating a higher turnover as well as higher expenses.
