Brand new warehouse venue to open in Paris, Vault
The 2,400 sq metre warehouse is set to open in May
A brand new warehouse space is opening up courtesy of Parisian promoters Yoyuka just a stone’s throw from Saint-Denis.
Setting up in the Parisian outskirts in the region of Le Bourget, Vault Bourget is set to boast 2,400 sq metres of indoor space and dancefloor, and a further 4,000 sq metre outside.
Vault will host both indoor, outdoor, and combined events twice a month with an opening party slated to go ahead on May 7.

“Everybody remembers Yoyaku Warehouse 2019: huge warehouse, amazing soundsystem, beautiful lineup! We decided to repeat the event in an exceptional place, the result of years of research,” Yoyuka posted on Instagram.
“Both a party place and a place to live, Vault will host a rich and eclectic musical program from May onwards, with two events per month. Warehouse at night, open-air during the day, Vault aims to offer a festive place for everyone.”
The venue will act as an open-air festival space during the summer, according to Yoyuka, and open up indoors over the winter to host more intimate events.

“After the summer, new spaces will be put at the disposal of the artistic and cultural scene of Île de France, transforming the warehouse into a real space of multidisciplinary creations: artists' workshops, recording studios, small restoration and exhibition space,” they said.
The first set of names appear to have been locked in for the debut events, including Craig Richards, Nicolas Lutz, Sugar Free, Rhadoo, Satoshi Tommie, Youandewan, and more.
Promoters, record shop, and label Yoyuka will also use the space for artists, bringing visuals created by house artists from Chapelle XIV gallery, and other studios to turn the enormous venue into an interactive multimedia space.
The opening event takes place on Saturday, May 7 from 8:PM until 6:AM the next morning. Find tickets to the first event here.
