Limoux. 90 volunteers caring for Bulles Sonores this weekend

the essential Zoom today on these people in the shadows without whom the festival would not take place: the volunteers. Less numerous than usual, conditions dictate, but just as effective, the bees of the Sound Bubbles have ensured that the party, this weekend, is total. And sparkling!

They are usually 240 bustling under the three huge outdoor marquees in Flassian. A real anthill to stage this extraordinary festival for a city of 12 00 0 inhabitants.

Volunteers have voluntarily reduced the sails to 90. The reason is simple, the displacement of the festival on the side of the gymnasium of Olympia. The oldest of the group, Monique, 74, will be present during the three days. Less area to cover, less needs. In the uncertainty of still uncertain sanitary conditions, the president of the festival Christian Bigot and Pierrick Aunillon, the coordinator for Spédidam and Voix ô Pays , played the everyone’s safety and reduced budgets.

Fortunately, Olympia, which has hosted the other musical event of the year since its creation, the Limoux Brass (ex-Cuivrée Special), has remarkable acoustics. What is called the balcony, above the room, will be closed for safety. No seating positions for the Sound Bubbles, the 1 600 seat gauge in the gymnasium has been lowered to 930 for adapt better.

Festival-goers will be standing with sanitary distances to be respected. Compulsory constraints to enjoy a concert live , before the definitive return to a normal situation.

For the occasion, the headmistress of the Ruffié high school, Carole Hasslauer, lent classrooms to open dressing rooms for artists, an office for production, storage of equipment, a hairdressing salon, make-up and well-being for children. artists.

This radical change of destination in each room was operated by the volunteers. “Fortunately, the public is there. There are still places that will be sold on site by the Limoux volunteers of Voix ô Pays”, e explains Christian Bigot always happy with these moments of excitement before the kickoff of the festival, Friday evening.
