After a never-before-seen edition 2020 because of the Covid-19 epidemic, and the health restrictions, Make Music Day 2021 will be held on Monday June 21. But facemasks will have to be worn, Minister of Culture Roselyne Bachelot announced.
Therefore, the different musical events held everywhere in France for this new edition of Make Music Day (or World Music Day) will have to comply with health guidelines.
For the record, Make Music Day was created in 1982 by the Ministry of Culture and Communication. "Make Music" so tells the watchword which used to sound like everything but a slogan. This event gathering professional and amateur musicians and the attention paid to all genres of music become a popular event thanks to an immediate success. This event is the translation of a policy which tried to make way to amateur rock, jazz or traditional musicians and singers.
Concerts’ free admission, SACEM’s support, media feed, regional governments’ support and a growing subscription would turn it into one of the biggest French cultural event in a few years only. By the way, it became wider in 1985, the European year of music. In less than fifteen years, over a hundred countries spread across the five continents followed the example of the Fête de la Musique!
This year, discover the musical events of this Make Music Day 2021 in Paris and Île-de-France. We remind you the virus is still spreading, hence the importance of sticking to health guidelines and social distancing.
