La Fête de la Musique !

A little bit of History


The "Fête de la Musique", also known as Music Day, Make Music Day or World Music Day, is an annual music celebration that takes place on 21 June.

On Music Day the citizens of a city or country are allowed and urged to play music outside in their neighborhoods or in public spaces and parks. Free concerts are also organized, where musicians play for fun and not for payment.

The first all-day musical celebration on the day of the solstice was originated by the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, and by Maurice Fleuret, and was first celebrated in Paris in 1982. Music Day later became celebrated in 120 countries around the world.
