“It’s going much too fast (1), right”? Like an accelerated sequence of life, the afternoon passed at the Rose Festival, on the forecourt of the MEETT, and it’s already 9 p.m. for the set of Bigflo & Oli, the two local children who invented the event. which brings together 25,000 spectators on the first evening and just as many this Saturday, September 2.

And since then, the energy that pours into this arena blows a liberating wind on this youth who came in large numbers. The weather has stopped getting on the nerves of the organization team and the two boys, so everything is on top for a long-awaited moment of celebration.

The organization, the impressive barnum put in place, the smiles, the energy of the teams, of the volunteers: everything is set but everything is also being invented before our eyes on this first day of the festival. The bars come alive, the food trucks heat the stoves, the technicians make the final adjustments and now the first artist arrives on stage. The performance of Zinée, the young Toulouse girl of barely 25 springs, instantly sets the scene.

She who caused a sensation during the last Transmusicales of Rennes returns to the country and she is delighted. The two stages located face to face on the immense square of the place allow a simple back and forth gymnastics to make the most of the artists’ performances. Suddenly, the accent slaps, the voices carry, the two happy faces of Mouss & Hakim appear on the big screens, and the music gives.

The rapper brothers experienced a great moment of happiness on stage with their audience.

Change of scene, the universe of Ben Mazué enchants fans and leaves no one indifferent. After walking to find inspiration, to concoct his well-constructed little music, he also occupies the stage space very well for an exciting concert that must have conquered many hearts and eardrums. And then the fire came! Be careful, no fire, no firefighters, no Canadairs on the horizon, no, the raw energy of the Deluxe group has taken over space, time, eyes, ears. And it was by ending with their now classic “Mustache Gracias” that they left the audience spellbound and spellbound after dancing, jumping, waving their arms in a huge, very impressive human tide. Then THEY arrived, moved and fired up, to the notes of “The Life After” (2) to sing “I promise, I promise I’m still with you…” And there, the madness…
