The objective of this study is “to assess the risks of transmission of the virus SARS-CoV-2 responsible for the Covid-19, during a large-scale concert in a standing configuration, not distanced, in a closed room “, one can read on the site of the experiment. People able to attend the concert of Indochina will have to In fact, comply with a strict health protocol on site: wearing a surgical mask continuously, strengthening hand hygiene, all in an optimally ventilated room, but that’s not all.

This device will make it possible to obtain precise, objective and up-to-date anonymous statistics on the rate of people wearing their mask correctly (no mask, badly worn, well worn) throughout the duration of the event “, we can read in the document.

The organizers of this scientific test, of this test concert will hold a press conference in beginning of the week. I think it’s about 5,000 people. ” And to detail: “We will play completely on a voluntary basis, we will even invest money to be able to present a dignified and strong concert. Today the agenda is almost for everything except standing concerts and standing concerts. is the majority of concerts. (…) We will have a final decision I think at the beginning of next week. “

Indochina on stage and Emmanuel Macron in the room. According to information from the Journal du Dimanche, the President of the Republic will attend the first French test concert. According to information from Le Parisien, this test concert will finally be held in the Parisian arena on May 29, after two postponements and confirmation from the Ministry of Culture. The cult French group Indochine is the headliner of this experiment. The audience of the Indochina concert will be standing, without physical distancing. However, they will have to present a negative PCR test within 72 hours.

A saliva test will be carried out on their arrival in the concert hall and the spectators will have to answer a questionnaire on possible symptoms. During the Indochina show, the public, masked, will be monitored by cameras and will have to perform a new saliva test 7 days after the concert. Also, all will be forced to download the government application TousAntiCovid.

According to information from the Journal du Dimanche, Emmanuel Macron should be present at the Accor Arena on May 29 for the Indochina test concert. A presence of the executive, after confirmation by the Ministry of Culture that the event would take place. Invited last Friday on BFMTV, Roselyne Bachelot had also confirmed the holding of this first concert, where 5,000 people are expected. “Of course, it would take place. We are in the process of releasing the funding,” explained the Minister of Culture, specifying that “the operation is extremely expensive: 900,000 euros”.

On April 12, the Prodiss (the union of the main producers of shows) launched an appeal to the government to carry out this project, questioning Emmanuel Macron and requesting his help for the organization of lives in the midst of a pandemic. Rightly so, since the government has labeled the concert tests as a national priority, reported The Parisian.

In Marseille, despite the organization of two test concerts, the Dome of the Phocaean city will remain empty. It is the group IAM which was to occur during this Marseilles concert, a “project which was not selected because of risks related to the proposed health protocols”, announced Roselyne Bachelot, Minister of Culture, Wednesday May 12th 2021. “We were very disappointed. It was above all the work of scientists and associations who had been working for many months to try to do this test concert, well before the one that was offered in Paris and which is authorized”, launched Akhenaton, leader of the group on franceinfo, saying he was “deeply disillusioned”.

Two test concerts were being prepared at the Dome of the Phocaean city. Le Parisien mentioned last March two events that were to take place “a week apart in March or April, with each time 1,000 people and IAM rappers on the bill.” The event had already been postponed, but the protocol had been established. “The public will be chosen from a student population without pathology or comorbidity”, explained Doctor Vincent Estornel, emergency doctor, to the newspaper. The 2,000 spectators of these two concerts would be tested between 24 and 48 hours before the event, then retested 7 and 14 days after the concert. In the hall, for each of the two concerts, “500 will attend the concert with social distancing and 500 without. Unlike the other tests, this one will not rule out spectators positive for Covid, ‘to assess whether there really is an increased risk infection ‘”, specified the doctor to the Parisian.

Tuesday March 27, in Barcelona in Spain, 5,000 people were able to attend a concert, masked, but without social distancing. This show by Love of Lesbian, a rock band, would have resulted in “no sign” of contagion, say its organizers. “There is no sign that any transmission took place during the event, which was the aim of this study,” said Josep Maria Llibre, doctor at Germans Trias i Pujol hospital in Badalone. , during a press conference. The audience, who had been tested for antigen before the concert, wore FFP2 masks.

According to this same specialist, only six positive cases out of the 5,000 spectators were detected two weeks after the concert and the organizers are certain “that for four of these six cases, the transmission did not take place during the concert”. In addition to the FFP2 masks, the organizers had put in place “optimized ventilation” and controls in critical places such as the toilets were strictly controlled. In France, several experiments must be carried out.
