Millésime K’s Montpellier Arrival: “Disgusted”, Says Duped Manager

Despite an outcry from several Hérault associations and unions, rapper Millésime K finally gave a concert on Saturday March 18 in Montpellier. An event that was held without the knowledge of the owner of the premises, deluded about the content of the concert.

The mobilization of a collective of associations and trade unions will have done nothing. The concert of Millésime K, a rapper close to the far right, in Montpellier (Hérault), on tour for around twenty dates, was finally held on Saturday March 18. “He intends to bring together local nationalists around his racist, homophobic and Islamophobic music,” wrote the political organization Jeune Garde Montpellier a few days ago.

To the chagrin of Thomas*, who manages the site where the event took place. Around 7 p.m. the same day, he received a call from one of the associations, which informed him of the situation. It’s the cold shower. “I’m disgusted, obviously I don’t want to be involved in this,” he told France 3 Occitanie.

“We Don’t Suspect a Thing”

Because the manager of this Montpellier place was not aware. “He booked for the evening from 6.30 p.m., speaking of a concert lasting an hour, with a varied audience including the elderly”, recalls the manager. “He sent me the contract, and his insurance, for me everything was good.” Thomas was miles away from imagining that: “Seeing the name of his company, I had no reason to worry. It’s pretty well done on their part, you don’t suspect a thing”, assures- he. The rapper makes sure to be above suspicion, and it works. “If the association had not warned me, I would never have known”, confirms the manager.

Once informed, Thomas looks for the rapper on the Internet, because he has “never heard of him”, then goes there. With no apparent problem, he can’t do anything. At the same time, he tries to contact the Hérault prefecture, but cannot reach them on a Saturday evening. The concert is therefore held, without significant damage or problems.

A Similar Process

A repeating pattern. Several halls in the country have had to deal with similar methods, few are those made aware of the content of the concert, and therefore of the arrival of this controversial artist. Each person in possession of a ticket receives, sometimes late, an email with the place decided by the rapper.

Thomas emerges from this misadventure “disappointed”, and “a little upset”. If he agrees to speak on condition of anonymity, it’s so that it doesn’t happen in other rooms. The manager feels cheated, and does not want his room to be associated with this kind of scandal. “It’s a place that I took over, which is not dedicated to these things,” says Thomas. “We organize events centered on sharing, we are committed to questions of ecological transition.” In the future, “it will be up to me to be more careful, I will be more vigilant”.
