Julien Doré and Angoulême, a great love story. In 2008, while his record Ersatz was a hit, the young singer chose La Nef in Angoulême to prepare his very first tour. It is within these walls that the artist and his team are fine-tuning the details, adjusting the technique, and preparing for several dates across France for an unforgettable show. Julien Doré loved the place. “It’s true that I’m starting to feel comfortable at La Nef. The room is incredible, the people are lovely. My guys like to work on the sound and light here,” the singer told Sud Ouest in 2008.
Julien Doré will never forget this moment. During his next tours, he wants to keep a special slot at La Nef. “When we go on tour, we always give a concert at La Nef, where we like to rehearse so much,” Julien Doré told Sud Ouest in 2013. La Nef, but not only. Angoulême is also in the heart of the singer. For his albums Bichon and Løve, the artist took up residence in the Charente city. And inspired by the place, Julien Doré wanted to include, not without difficulty, the name of Angoulême in his single Paris-Seychelles. When the artist says something, he sticks to it.
Paris-Seychelles was nominated for the NRJ Music Awards in 2014 in the Francophone Song of the Year category.
Opened in 1993 by the co-founders of Mazouing, a concert bar in Angoulême, the Nave has become a concert hall in its own right.
Installed in a former powder magazine dating from 1879, La Nef is a concert, recording and/or rehearsal venue located in Angoulême. With a capacity of 700 seats, La Nef has welcomed many artists and groups looking for a human-sized venue.
Enlarged in 2005, La Nef is now managed by the community of agglomerations of Greater Angoulême.
