About The Fête de la Musique
Created in 1982 the Fête de la musique is now an established tradition in France (and many other places around Europe and the Francophone world) taking place on the 21st of June. On that very special day, musicians of diverse genres come out onto the streets, the squares, and the cafés to perform for free.

Complete programme will be available shortly.
