France to Open Concert Halls Beginning May 19

The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, has announced the reopening cultural venues to the press


With concerts beginning again on May 19, concert attendance will be limited to 800 people, and outdoor concert attendance will remain at 1000 people.

Museums, theaters, monuments, and venues of this sort will reopen from this date as well. Residents of France will have a curfew of 9 in the evening.

At the start of June, and as long as patrons have a health pass, events with attendance larger than 1000 people will be permitted.

Eventually, participating in events larger than 1000 people both indoors and outdoors will be possible. With this, it is possible for music festivals to be held with some normalcy for the rest of the year and beyond.
