In the spring, Paléo makes public its intention to move. More than 90,000 people throng the lakeside venue for a farewell party to the rhythms of the Drums of Burundi. Charles Trenet manages to focus the attention of all generations present, Joe Cocker appears for the first time and the Mano Negra leave a cloud of dust in their wake. More than 1,000 staff ensure the smooth running of this 1989 edition, in an atmosphere of intense emotion.
