World Music Day in France

Fête de la musique en France

 

Bonjour à tout le monde, in today’s post I will tell you about my first experience of visiting la fête de la musique in France.

It is known in different countries, but here in France this day you can literally hear music everywhere. At first I was surprised because in my country there isn’t such holiday. That’s a pity! I liked a lot the idea of this day.

Every year, the 21 of June, since 1982, this festival takes place in every city and even in small towns of France. The idea is to celebrate the first day of the summer. Usually, it starts at 18 o’clock and lasts until midnight. Closer to 20 o’clock there were a lot of people and the atmosphere was super fun!

This day you can see many different small and big scenes in city centers. Music is played on every corner. Another great thing is that you can hear different genres of music: rock, jazz, traditional or classical music… That is why this festival is organized for young and adult people. You can choose the music that you like.

And of course, there are lots of good food! Tarte flambée, bretzel, knack et merguez… Mmmm…Perfect!

This festival is a good opportunity for amateurs to play their music for a large public and for professional bands to share positive emotions with their fans.
