Fete de la Musique

The summer is fast approaching as we move up to the half way mark in the year and that only means one thing in France, Fete de la Musique. Also known as World Music Day, this year's festival will kick off on Wednesday 21st June 2017.                

The Fete de la Musique is a completely free music festival. The musicians perform for free in public places such as parks, museums and castles. Anyone who wants to perform is allowed to apply to be a part of the festival. The festival is filled with professional and amateur musicians. You do not have to pay to attend; it is a large cheerful festival which brings all sorts of people together with lots of different genres of music.


This year, the 31st Fete de la Musique is celebrating 50 years of pop music. In 1962 four lads from Liverpool released their first EP. The Beatles marked the start of a new era with their Single; Love me do. Pop music was born and just like Jazz music, pop caused a revolution which transformed society.musique


Previously festival music lovers from all over celebrated pop with amateur and professional musicians on the streets of France and many other places all over the world.
