La Fête de la musique is a annual event coming up next weekend . It’s as if the whole of Paris is having a big party with music everywhere and a lot of people on the streets.
The Fête de la Musique is a free popular fête, open to any participant (amateur or professional muicians) who wants to perform in it. This Music day allows the expression of all styles of music in a cheerful atmosphere. It gives an opportunity to communicate and share a very special moment through music.
The musicians are asked to perform for free, and all the concerts are free for the public. It?s the reason why they are used to play in open air areas as streets and parks or in public buildings like museums, train stations, castles? Furthermore, the Fête de la Musique is a way to encourage the major music institutions (orchestra, operas, choirs, etc.) to perform outside their usual locations.
For a program go to the site, or … a better idea is to “flane” on the streets and let the music bring you at different places.
