The musician will give a concert at the Elysee Palace which will be broadcast on Culturebox and on social networks.
Jean-Michel Jarre, one of the pioneers of electronic music, programmer of the electro concert organized at the Élysée on Monday June 21 for the Fête de la Musique, expressed his impatience: “We can’t wait to share good vibes with all of you, “he said on Friday June 18 on franceinfo. In addition to the end of the curfew at 11 p.m. on Sunday, June 20, a relaxation of the protocol for the Fête de la Musique was announced Thursday evening by the Minister of Culture Roselyne Bachelot. Mini-concerts in bars and restaurants will be possible.
Jean-Michel Jarre: This Music Festival is marked this year by the relaxation of health measures that were long awaited. We will be able to reinvest a lot of places of music and shows beyond the bars. A bit like for Heritage Days, to be able to play music in certain places in the Republic which, basically, belong to all of us.
I am happy, indeed, that the tenant of the Élysée invites us to make some noise in his courtyard and thus to celebrate the electronic music which suffered especially during this period. I was in charge of the programming of this concert which will be transgenerational and which will also testify to the diversity of styles of this music and also of the place of women in this music. 200 young holders of the Culture Pass will be able to attend the concerts while respecting the sanitary instructions. The musical program will be followed by young people who will in fact be seated upright with high seats. So, we get closer to the standing position. The concert will also be broadcast live on Culturebox from 8 p.m. and will also be relayed on social networks such as Tik Tok, YouTube, etc. It will therefore be accessible to all. Which was obviously important to us.
A Fête de la Musique without an improvised concert in the street, isn’t that too frustrating?
Yes, but at the same time, we all know that we have to go gradually. What the minister announced is already progress over what we might have feared. This will still allow you to breathe, to make music. We are especially delighted to meet the public again and we can’t wait to share good vibes with you all.
