- 1 Sluggish reservations
- 2 The health protocol, latest version
- 3 We raise the sound
- 4 Only day tickets
For a long time, we have known that this 2021 edition will in no way be comparable to that of 2019 and its record attendance: more than 55,000 people over three days. Because, in this particular year, the organizers have worked on a new format: four concert evenings with refreshments and catering and a maximum capacity of 4000 standing spectators. But, for now, we are far from the mark. Like so many others, the Feast of noise must have been difficult to fill. Thus, at the end of last week, we were at some 2,500 people per evening. As everywhere in France, the obligation of a health pass distracts more than one. On the side of the organizers, it is believed, on the other hand, that the absence of camping is not an obstacle to marketing. However, once the sound systems are off, festival-goers will have to go home. We’ll have to find some evening captains.
Constantly updated according to government announcements, the sanitary protocol of the Fête du Noise has gone through several versions. The most recent came out of the boxes on July 15 and only makes the health pass compulsory from the age of 12 (and no longer 11). Three documents will provide access to the site. The first, and arguably the rarest, is a certificate of recovery from covid-19. The other admitted spectators will be the vaccinated ones, provided that their second dose has been administered to them for at least seven days (and no longer 15 as previously envisaged). All others must provide proof of a negative PCR test of less than 48 hours. Thus, those who want to attend the entire festival will have to be tested twice: Wednesday, to attend the concerts on Thursday and Friday; Friday, for the evenings of Saturday and Sunday. By force, we will make fakirs! Note that wearing a mask will not be compulsory but recommended.
But, back to basics, namely the musical programming of the festival. So, of course, new rhymes with reduced. Thus, this year, the evenings will be much shorter with, depending on the day, two, three or four artists on the bill. However, there will be many beautiful things to discover: Reynz (8:45 pm) and Soprano on Thursday; Jason Mist (7:30 p.m.), Asaf Avidan and Grand Corps Malade on Friday; No Pain No Pain (5:45 p.m.), La Rue Ketanou, Dionysos and Tryo on Saturdays; The Chapas (5:30 p.m.), Suzane, 47Ter and IAM on Sundays.
With an occupancy rate of 65% at the end of last week, the Feast of noise has, in terms of ticketing, enough to satisfy new festival-goers. They can buy their sesame online or directly on site. Whatever the solution chosen and the day chosen, the prices remain the same: € 46.50 full price and € 36 for children under 12. This year, the event does not offer a pass. Only day tickets are on sale.
