The "Fête de la Musique" devised by Jack Lang when he was the French Minister for Culture, was created on 21 June 1982, coinciding with the summer solstice. The event then experienced a real boom and became a fully-fledged popular event. The Fête de la Musique aims to promote music by organising a range of free concerts to enable a wide public to experience quality events. It's culture for and by all.
Organised by the Conseil de la Musique, it will once again be the opportunity to show off the vitality this event generates, as shown last year when it attracted nearly one million people in the French-speaking community. The events will offer a range of prestigious concerts in the Parc Cinquantenaire. The choice on offer is vast, making this a festival with big names and new talent a unique combination of tradition and pure enjoyment!
