Electronic music events in France fall victim to the ongoing unrest, resulting in multiple cancellations.

France has experienced a lot of trouble recently because of riots. It all started when a 17-year-old boy named Nahel was shot and killed by a police officer on Tuesday in a place near Paris called Nanterre.

The protests have been going on for four nights in a row, and they have caused a lot of damage. Many buildings have been set on fire, and thousands of cars have been burned. The police have also been attacked in different towns and cities all over the country.

As per the resources, things have gotten so out of control and people are worried about safety, some big events had to be canceled. One of the most important events that got called off was Mylène Farmer’s concerts. She was supposed to perform for two nights at the Stade de France, which is a huge stadium that can hold up to 90,000 people. Her concerts were supposed to happen on June 30th and July 1st.

Circumstances forced us to cancel the two concerts at Stade de France. All the teams are looking for the best opportunities to try and find new dates and propose solutions, even if each new day remains an unknown.

– Said producer Thierry Suc

The Fnac store in France had to cancel the last night of its Fnac Live Paris festival due to riots happening in France. The festival was going to have performances by Aime Simone, Hervé, and Selah Sue.

On Friday, the French government made a rule that all buses and trams should stop running at 9 PM everywhere in the country. They repeated this rule in Paris on Saturday, and they also stopped public transportation at 7 PM in Marseille and 8 PM in Lyon.
