A new illegal rave party is taking place in France. While an event bringing together more than 1,500 people takes place this weekend in Isère, another rave-party is underway in Hérault. Nearly 6,000 people take part in it in the middle of nature in the town of Viols-en-Laval, a village located 20 km north of Montpellier, according to the prefecture.

“The participants in this rave-party illegal arrived massively during the night from Saturday to Sunday, generating significant traffic difficulties, on unsuitable terrain that is difficult to access”, specifies the press release from the prefecture, which also mentions the presence on the scene of “1 500 vehicles of all kinds (light vehicles, caravans, heavy goods vehicles, motorhomes)”.

About fifty gendarmes mobilized

The area where this event takes place illegally, classified as a Natura 2000 area, is “composed of scrubland and cramped tracks”, recalls the prefecture.

About fifty gendarmes are mobilized “to facilitate traffic and secure the surroundings. The perimeter is monitored to prevent the arrival of new participants and many controls are in place,” she continues.

Fire hazard

“Faced with the risk of fire and the difficulties in accessing emergency services, awareness raising for the organizers was carried out by the firefighters of SDIS 34 and the gendarmes”, also notes the prefecture.

A medical station has been set up to provide first aid and risk prevention associations are also present on site.
