About Fête de la Musique

The Fête de la Musique was initiated in France in 1982, and has since then remarkably spread out around the world. This international event, dedicated to musical practice and live music in general, open to all kinds of audience, is really unique.

​Completely different from a music festival, the Fête de la Musique is above all a free popular fête, open to any participant (amateur or professional musicians) who wants to perform in it. This Music day allows the expression of all styles of music in a cheerful atmosphere. It aims at a large audience, working to popularise musical practice for young and not so young people from all social backgrounds. It gives an opportunity to communicate and share a very special moment through music.

Fête de la Musique – Worldwide Music Day is celebrated on every June 21st all over the world, according to each country’s cultural specificities. It federates various kinds of participants: educational structures, cultural centers, diplomatic networks, city councils, local authorities, ministries for culture, associations, artists, music professionals, music schools… Public and private organisers show, through this joint event, their desire to foster the visibility of the current artistic realities of their countries, and to enhance cultural exchanges.
