franceinfo: What is a digital Telethon?

Jean-Michel Jarre: This year, Telethon is expanding its reach by broadcasting for the first time on digital platforms, but also in virtual reality. The evening will begin with a replay of the concert she gave in the virtual cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris on the occasion of New Year’s Eve 2021, of which Radio France was a partner, and which at that time gathered more than 75 million people in the world. This shows that virtual reality can reach very broadly, beyond borders, to a younger audience far from television.

Does that allow us to collect more than 77 million euros in donations raised in 2020, which was the lowest level in 20 years?

We hope so! We hope that all young people in turn will be a kind of Telethon ambassador to their families and those around them so that donations can return to what they were before the Covid-19 pandemic and even more if possible!

What will Yael Naim, Molecul, and Minotaur’s immersive VR party look like on Saturday evening?

As far as I’m concerned, this will be a replay of the concert I did at the virtual Notre Dame de Paris during New Years Eve 2021. I’ll be with my digital husband, my avatar, in the center of the cathedral. For those who have virtual reality glasses, they can be inside Notre Dame and for those who will be in front of their computers, tablets or smartphones, by swiping their finger on the screen, they will be able to walk in the cathedral and have different perspectives as if they were in a room and turn their heads To look at what is happening on the right and on the left.

In addition to virtual concerts, YouTubers, gamers and influencers are participating in the digital Telethon model Z Event which raised more than 10 million euros last month for Action Against Hunger. This generation is revolutionizing charitable activities!
