Safety: Measures and procedures to ensure a smooth festival


For your comfort and safety and to ensure the event goes as smoothly as possible, measures related to the Vigipirate plan will be applied at the LUMIÈRE festival. Certain procedures at entry points will be mandatory and systematic.

We thank you in advance for cooperating with the security and reception teams put in place and for your compliance during the security procedures.

In order to improve the flow of the queues at the sites, please
- Prepare your physical ticket or increase the brightness of your smartphone screen if you do not have a paper ticket,
- Be patient and understanding during the various searches and pat-downs that we are obliged to carry out,
- Open your bags and present your personal belongings,
- Facilitate the security procedure.

For these reasons, please arrive early for a screening or event, allowing additional time for the security checks. For major events (Opening Night, Lumière Award Ceremony, Closing ceremony, All-nighter at the Halle Tony Garnier) doors will open 90 minutes before the event start time.
