FRANCE – La Seine Musicale is a music and performing arts center located on Île Seguin an island on the Seine river between Boulogne-Billancourt and Sèvres, in the western suburbs of Paris, France.
On 20 May 2021, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and French broadcaster France Télévisions announced that the center will host the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021.
The contest will take place on 19 December 2021 at Grand Seine, the biggest venue in the complex, and will be the first time that France has hosted the contest, as well as the first Eurovision event to be hosted in the country since Eurovision Young Dancers 1999 in Lyon.
The seating capacity for the unamplified Patrick-Devedjian Auditorium is 1,150. The larger modular concert hall, Grande Seine, at a lower elevation on the island site is able to accommodate audiences of up to 6,000.
