La fête de la musique: an international enchanted celebration of Music  

21 June 2023

        La Fête de la Musique is an annual event that celebrates music in all its forms. It takes place every year on June 21 in many countries around the world. This special day is an opportunity for music lovers from all walks of life to get together, share their passion and enjoy a unique festive atmosphere. In this blog, we'll explore the history of la Fête de la Musique, its cultural and social impact, and some of the memorable moments that make it a must-attend event for music lovers.

A Tribute to Music:

       La Fête de la Musique was created in France in 1982 by Jack Lang, then Minister of Culture. The idea was to celebrate music by allowing all musicians, amateur and professional alike, to perform freely in the streets, public squares, parks, and gardens. Since then, la Fête de la Musique has become a worldwide phenomenon, with events organized in over 120 countries.

The magic of street performance:

       One of the most remarkable aspects of la Fête de la Musique is the opportunity for musicians to perform outdoors, creating a unique and festive atmosphere. In the lively streets, rock bands, street singers, orchestras, brass bands, DJs and many other artists share their talent with the public. Passers-by can discover new music, dance, and get carried away by the catchy melodies that take over the streets.
