Cancellation of the 2021 edition of Le son continu
It is with great sadness that we inform you that we are cancelling this year’s festival.
We were hoping for a crisis exit. We wanted to offer you a friendly, welcoming and festive event, with the help of our public and private partners. Unfortunately, i twill not be possible.
Despite a defined schedule for the resumption of cultural events, a lot of doubts remained. Our event doesn’t fit in the kinds of festivals mentioned by the French Ministry of Culture in its speakings. Our decision is based on the guidelines known to this day. And from an organizational point of view, we cannot wait and hope for hypothetical last minute changes.
We worked on several successive projects, as the government’s guidelines changed, but it is now obvious that we cannot have a strong project with the certainty of being approved in July.
Our festival is made of three elements : live music, dance and the instrument makers exhibition. It’s this combination that is the charm and success of our event. It’s this combination that makes you want to come here.
Today, we can’t install wooden floor for dancing, dancers are therefore excluded from our event. For us it means closing two of our three main stages, La Pommeraie and La Cour du Château…
Today, we can’t organise an instrument maker exhibition without strict health measures : impossiblity to try the instruments, difficulty for us to receive foreign Luthiers, a flow direction in the exhibition…
Today, all our group activities, our participatory and open stages can’t be held. It’s an important part of our festival that can’t happen.
Today, the only thing we can organise is live music concerts with a seated audience.
We don’t want to exclude parts of our public. We don’t want a half-empty park which sounds hollow. We don’t want to impose so many constraints to our festival-goers, to our luthiers, to our dancers, to our volunteers, to our technicians.
We want to see smiles, not masks. We want to hear music in the park. We want to dance. We want to clink glasses with friends. We want to live.
So let’s meet together next summer, for a real festival. Save the dates : from July 14th to July 17th, 2022.
