Following the latest government announcements, the Francofolies de La Rochelle are reviewing their organization to offer concerts closer to the pre-Covid.
The Francofolies are rethinking their 2021 edition. Following a new lifting of restrictions, the La Rochelle festival announces that the concerts planned on the large Jean-Louis Foulquier stage will take place in a standing configuration, and that the mask will not be compulsory . A new step towards a return to normal for this edition which will take place from July 10 to 14.
“The big Jean-Louis Foulquier scene of the Francofolies standing and without a mask!”, Write the organizers on Twitter. “Following the latest announcements of June 21, 2021 from the Ministry of Culture, the large stage Jean-Louis Foulquier switches to standing or seated configuration in bleachers.”
These announcements follow those of Roselyne Bachelot, who said Monday that the “standing” concerts could resume without a mandatory mask from June 30. A configuration hitherto prohibited due to the health crisis, which had forced the summer festivals to rethink their organization.
A compulsory health pass
The organizers provide some additional information on the official Francofolies website: spectators of the Jean-Louis Foulquier stage must present a valid health pass.
