On the walls fans could watch a discography with record covers and a list of Jarre concerts with concert photos. There was also a stall with Jarre articles like e.g. posters, magazines, CDs, photos etc. On a big screen a slide show with concert photos was shown, followed by a film of Jean Michel’s Monaco concert.

At 3 o’clock Thomas Gruberskis’ concert „Spacetime Adventures“ started. Thomas already played at Jarre fanmeetings (e.g. in Belgium) in the past and has released 3 CDs with own compositions.
