Metro Musicians: launch of spring castings!

We are launching new castings during March/April 2019.

These auditions, held twice a year in spring and autumn, are open to all and let us offer 300 musicians the chance to perform on “the biggest stage in Paris”, the metro.
Nearly a thousand musicians will try their luck in Paris, in front of a jury made up of RATP staff and passengers, to obtain the precious title of Metro Musician, allowing them to play in stations on our network.

What qualities do I need in order to try my luck?

In addition to candidates’ musical ability and motivation, particular attention is paid to achieving stylistic and cultural diversity, reflecting the city and its passengers.

A few words about Metro Musicians

Since its creation in 1997, the Metro Musician title has gradually allowed the RATP station network to become an important venue. Many well-known artists have cut their teeth there, such as Keziah Jones, Irma, William Baldé, Zaz, EMJI (winner of “Nouvelle Star” 2015), Clément Verzi (“The Voice” finalist in 2016), Claudio Capéo and Arcadian

As part of our cultural events programme, the Metro Musicians label meets several goals:

  • offering quality music to passengers in our facilities, to liven up their journeys,
  • bringing out young talent,
  • letting them perform on the metro premises, with millions of people passing through every day, under conditions that respect passengers,
  • offering them a springboard by letting them take part in RATP partner festivals and events (Solidays, Art’Rock, Chorus festival, etc.).

We are continually seeking to enrich our transport environment by introducing more services, but also by ensuring cultural awareness and community spirit among our 14 million daily passengers. Throughout the year, we liven up our networks with cultural or sporting events, linked with our brand signature “Demandez-nous la ville” (“Ask us for the city”). It is in this spirit that music regularly finds its place on the RATP network.
