The enclosure of Bercy appeared, however, the empty gaze of a crowd of 20,000 people as it can hold usually. Two scenes in the shape of a heart were installed in the centre. And all around, the technical team of the show All set to music broadcast the event on France 2, a two-day music Festival that takes place on Sunday.
The health rules are strict: wearing a mask mandatory, marking on the ground to avoid that the spectators do not intersect, and the obligation to leave a seat empty for all the two seats to comply with the distancing in the room. "We say that we're going to the masked ball", slipped to the AFP a spectator, Cecilia Boulé, before entering the room. "But it will pass so quickly that we are not going to feel the mask". "It comes from the Doubs, it was more than 500 km for this concert", said for his part Philippe Pierre. "We needed it, it has been over three months that we do more together. Then there was the occasion, or never. We have not looked at the number of kilometers", complemented his wife, Maryse."strong Symbol of recovery"
In total, 44 artists of the French scene - there was also Vianney, Bénabar, or the group, the LEJ - follow each other in the evening, mainly on the giant screens that cut the room in two, another part of the concert that has been recorded on Wednesday and Thursday.
"We took the decision at the last minute to invite the public," explained Laetitia Iriart, director of marketing of the AccorHotels Arena, for which the opening of this room is "a strong symbol of revival of the business". "The music Festival, it is the rendezvous of the music. It is there to give emotion to people. It feels good that people could not wait any longer", she says.
