Fête de la Musique
From a National Day to the biggest musical event worldwide
The Fête de la Musique, was created in June 21st 1982 at the initiative of Jack Lang, French Minister of Culture at the time. It began its expansion in 1985 with the European year of music. 15 years after, Fête de la Musique takes place on the five continents.
In 2009, more than 110 countries and 430 cities have celebrated the Music Day. This free popular event dedicated to music reaches all populations, amateurs and professional, musicians to celebrate music in all genres.
This international development is the result of the involvement of the French cultural network abroad and local operators, who are becoming more and more involved in it (music academies, associations, municipalities, etc)
The festival has grown in the world becoming a national event in several countries (Luxembourg, Italy, Nigeria, Ecuador, Australia…) and also held big cities like New York, Valparaiso or London.
