Paris – Fête de la Musique

On June 21st, the Summer Solstice, for one day all of Paris suspends the noise ordinance and celebrates in a citywide way! This is free and completely different from any other music festival.

The Fête de la Musique is open to any amateur or professional musician who wants to perform in it, so if you are traveling to Paris, you may want to bring your instrument(s).

The event expresses all styles of music in a festive context. It attracts a large audience, and it hopes to popularize musical practice for young and not-so-young people from all social backgrounds.

Major music institutions (orchestra, operas, choirs, etc.) participate and usually perform outside their regular locations, giving everyone a chance to hear their world renowned ensembles.

Launched in 1982 by the French Ministry for culture, the Fête de la Musique is held in more than 100 countries around the world.

This event gives an opportunity to communicate and share a very special moment through music.
