La Salle de la Cité

The Salle de La Cité is the heart of Festival 2021: a place of welcome, information and conviviality. Come and meet us and enjoy a relaxing space. Meet the Electroni[k] team and projects, weekdays from 1pm to 7pm and weekends from 10am to 7pm.

The Salle de La Cité is a union and political meeting room and a mythical theater in Rennes. Designed by Emmanuel Le Ray and built in 1925 following the workers’ movement of the 19th century, the Salle de la Cité has had several functions during the 20th century (cinema, showroom…). The place has been renovated several times and the painting of Camille Godet, present in the building, is classified as heritage. A rehabilitation project is initiated after the movement of 2015 and, in 2021, the renovation and upgrading work is completed.

The Salle de la Cité was the heart of Now’s festival in 2015 and 2016, before migrating to the Théâtre du Vieux Saint-Étienne from 2017 to 2020.
