The new edition of RockCorps took place this Wednesday, May 29, 2024 at the Accor Arena in Paris. The concept of the event? Give 4 hours of your time as a volunteer in an association to get tickets for a free concert with Macklemore, Franglish and Rosinia.

The concert organized by RockCorps France was held this year in association with Ibis, at theAccor Arena in Bercy, on Wednesday May 29, 2024. The original concept of RockCorps is to use music as a " catalyst for social change, bringing together people from all walks of life to work hand in hand towards a more united and supportive society ", according to the organization.

To get their tickets for the free concert, volunteers had to give 4 hours of their time to a civic project. In exchange for these 4 hours of volunteer work, volunteers received their tickets to see Macklemore, Franglish and Rosinia at the legendary venue in the 12th arrondissement. Thanks to the project, 124 associations benefited from the help of volunteers in 8 French towns and in the Île de France region.

Macklemore, who was eagerly awaited on stage, won over the audience as soon as he arrived. The American rapper donned his trademark leopard coat from the Thrift Shop video and got the whole audience up and dancing. Between songs, he exchanges with the audience and insists on his love for Paris and the French. A touching concert during which he wants to be close to the audience, even asking spectators not to film the whole concert, but to live in the moment. He ended the concert with his famous song Can't Hold Us, and went down into the audience, who carried him out in a shower of confetti. A great moment, and a great way to motivate the French to volunteer .

The Ibis RockCorps France concert was well worth the detour, and inspired us to reinvent ourselves through civic projects. Well done to the people behind the project for this great initiative. Their motto: You give, you receive!
