As explained in an Instagram caption penned by the festival organisers, it has had to take the decision to spread it out. they wrote: "In the context of the difficulties linked to the health crisis in France and Japan, we are forced to modify the format of the festival, and to rethink it on the day and night of Saturday March 26."

Attendees will be able to sample traditional Japanese teas, sake, and street cuisine in addition to the music and sights. The festival is also a phone-free zone, with attendees being requested to place their phones in bags with magnetic locks before entering.

As written on Instagram, the festival said: "We are certain that this edition will be sumptuous, and we are counting on your support to make the resumption of this festival an unforgettable moment."
