Please make arrangements to get tested before your arrival.

You may not be able to get back to your country before this period ends, at your own expenses. 


The health pass is mandatory in all of the festival covered and closed areas and will be requested. We will conveniently provide a wristband that will allow access to the venues without having to be rechecked for festival goers with a full vaccination up to date, on demand. Only health passes with a French or European QR code that can be validated by the « Tous anti covid » app will be accepted. The health pass is provided to the ones whose full vaccination schedule is up to date or who have been tested negative 24 hours prior, in a pharmacy or by any other approved person, as to date. If you are not vaccinated, you will have to be tested everyday.
