Paris club Djoon has launched a crowdfunding campaign to aid its planned reopening.
Like many venues, the house club - which launched back in 2003 - has financially struggled as a result of being closed for the last 15 months. The venue incurred €80,000 in losses in 2020, which has continued to rise in the first half of this year.
The Music Venue Trust has outlined necessary government support for grassroots clubs.
Following their recent warning that grassroots venues will face closure as a result of the delay on the proposed 21st June opening date in the UK, the charity shared the six-point plan to manage the impact on extended COVID-19 restrictions on UK venues.
Pacha could be in hot water after two go-go dancers were seen impersonating Police officers, which is against the law in Spain and can carry a maximum sentence of three years in prison.

According to El Mundo, two men dressed as policemen led a group of VIPs from the nearby Pacha Hotel to the club stopping traffic in the process.
