Radiant-Bellevue: A contemporary arts centre with a mix of French and international live music acts, theatre, dance and comedy.
The Radiant-Bellevue is a couple of kms north of the centre of Lyon. It’s a modern and comfortable place suitable for all tastes and ages. The music is mostly pop and rock and there are several shows for children. There is plenty of theatre and comedy making for a wide variety of artistic entertainment.
The Radiant-Bellevue has two spaces in which to hold concerts. The main room has a capacity of 640 to 2500 people and the smaller “club” is designed for a capacity of between 80 and 240 and is perfect for more intimate evenings such as theatre presentations, dance and comedy. It serves as a place for artist residencies and there are also regular evenings showcasing new up and coming talent.
The main concert hall and the club and atrium are all available for private hire for various types of functions. Concerts in recent years have included: Garbage, Birdy, Carmen and Black Lilys. The Radiant is run by manager and producer Victor Bosch who previously founded the Transbordeur in Lyon.
