Around 9 p.m., the atmosphere slowly rises in the “fan zone” set up at the Ferme de la Harpe in the Villejean district. The public gathered in front of the giant screen of 15 m², in the open air. While the first notes of Eurovision resound, some Gwenn ha du and tricolor flags are out. The public seated wisely on the ground listens to the passage of the first candidates.
It is 9:40 p.m. when the four members of Alvan & Ahez take the stage to perform their song “Fulenn” (spark in Breton) to the cheers of the crowd.

This encouragement comes in addition to that, in particular, of the president of the Loïg Chesnais-Girard region and Alan Stivell? who came at the start of the evening to support Alvan & Ahez and congratulate themselves on seeing the Breton language thus highlighted. Even if the chances are slim, 26 years after Dan Ar Braz’s participation in Eurovision in 1996, many here hope to finish on the top steps of the podium. This is the case of Gwenaël who intends to stay there until the end of the competition: “I hope they will come out on top. The band is nice and the song is good.
