The 43rd Trans Musicals meeting in Rennes, which ends this Sunday, brought together 56,000 participants, a participation equal to that of 2019 and greater than what was expected, announced the organizers of this talent-pioneering festival.
The organizers have identified “56,000 participants, including 32,000 spectators at the Parc-Expo and 2,200 professionals”. Eighty-four groups of 34 different nationalities and more than 500 musicians participated in the event, despite the cancellations related to the health context and traffic restrictions in some countries. Eleven beginner groups have also benefited from artistic support from professionals, the objective being to help them improve their practice on stage. “It’s great to have succeeded in doing it, that practically all the artists were there. It was absolutely great teamwork», Reacted Sunday Jean-Louis Brossard, founder of the festival.
an edition scrutinized by the authorities
For the first time since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the festival returned to its audience after a virtual edition in 2020, with mandatory health passes and masks, an edition particularly scrutinized by the authorities due to the resurgence of the epidemic of covid-19. The instructions for the mask, posted in the halls of the Parc-Expo, however, were not always followed by everyone, especially at the end of the evening. Asked about the rave party which took place overnight from Saturday to Sunday in an abandoned hangar in Rennes and brought together up to 2,000 people, the organizers acknowledged that there had “often been free in the past -parties during the Trans ”, without commenting further. The organizers have made an appointment with their audience for the 44th edition, which will be held from December 7 to 11, 2022.
