This time it's the right one.
They will be 2,200 clubbers to wiggle their hips Sunday, October 17, 2021 in two high places of Parisian nightlife, the Bellevilloise and the Machine du Moulin Rouge.
The stake is not only to have a festive moment.
The event, entitled Reviens la nuit, is organized in partnership with the AP-HP and the ANRS Emerging infectious diseases.
The objective is to determine the risks of contamination in an enclosed place without respecting barrier gestures.
It was thus necessary to collect some 4,400 volunteers. Of this total, only half will be invited to go at a rather late hour for this type of event - 4 p.m. - in the two locations participating in the operation. The others will serve as a control group, and will allow the level of contamination to be compared between participants and non-participants. Note that to be registered, all participants had to justify a complete vaccination schedule against Covid-19. They also had to be between 18 and 49 years old, not have a risk factor for a severe form of Covid-19 and live in the Île-de-France region.
#ReviensLaNuit It's the last moment to register for this scientific experiment, with Laurent Garnier, Kiddy Smile, Jabberwocky, Bambounou, La Créole, Roni, RAG and Nizar!
Dance to help research!

- Come back at night (@ReviensLaNuit) October 14, 2021
In an attempt to convince revelers, the organizers have planned a program worthy of the name.
Laurent Garnier, Kiddy Smile, Jabberwoccky, Bambounou, LA CREOLE, Pete The Monkey, Roni, Rag and Nizar are scheduled for these two evenings.
A first experiment was planned at the end of June, when the nightclubs were still closed.
But it must have been canceled for lack of being able to gather enough volunteers.
In the meantime, night establishments were able to reopen on July 9, on condition that they provide a valid health pass at the entrance.
The managers, for their part, must not exceed a tonnage of more than 75% of the maximum attendance.
