Fete de la Musique
From: 2014.06.20 To: 2014.06.20
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 muicians) 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. The musicians are asked to perform for free, and all the concerts are free for the public, making open air areas such as streets and parks or in public buildings like museums, train stations, and castles ideal venues. 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 like offering concerts in hospitals or in prisons. By allowing all to play, and asking professional musicians to step out of their comfort zones, the event is always brimming with energy and passion.
