Michael Canitrot’s Unprecedented DJ Set Atop Eiffel Tower

In a historic celebration marking the centenary of Gustave Eiffel’s passing, French DJ and producer Michael Canitrot is set to mesmerize audiences with a groundbreaking DJ set atop the iconic Eiffel Tower. This unprecedented performance, scheduled for December 27th, will be livestreamed on social media and broadcast on French television, transforming the renowned landmark into an ethereal rave setting.

Michael Canitrot, acclaimed for his prowess in curating melodic techno and progressive house vibes, plans to enchant the audience with a 50-minute DJ set. Notably, the performance will showcase his latest track “CHANGE,” a collaboration with house music icon Roland Clark. This landmark event follows a string of sold-out shows on Canitrot’s Monumental Tour, which included remarkable sets at prominent locations like Place Stanislas in Nancy, France, and the Palazzo Ducale in Genoa, Italy.

The Monumental Tour has been celebrated for its visual extravagance, gracing heritage sites such as the Mont Saint-Michel Abbey and the Palais Royal. Institutions like the Institut de France and the French National Commission for UNESCO have lauded the tour for its unique approach.

The Eiffel Tower event promises not only an exceptional DJ set but also a spectacular lighting display projected onto the iconic structure. The performance will feature guest artists, including the “Spectre” choir, mezzo-soprano singer Yana Mann, contemporary dancer Abblaye Diop, and pianist Yann Dulché. Award-winning French actor Philippe Torreton will lend his voice to guide the audience through this immersive experience in remembrance of Gustave Eiffel.

The broadcast of Monumental Tour celebrates Eiffel is scheduled for December 27th, 2023, at 9 pm CET as a premiere on Canitrot’s and the Eiffel Tower’s YouTube and Facebook pages. The performance will later be available online for replay, offering a unique blend of music, visual spectacle, and historical homage.
