World Music Day 2018 in Paris and Île-de-France

On Thursday June 21, 2018, World Music Day will be back in France and in Paris. On this day, amateur musicians will invade the capital’s streets and bars to properly celebrate the 37th edition of World Music Day aka Fête de la Musique.

After a wonderful edition 2017, World Music Day 2018 will be held on Thursday June 21 and this 37th edition is going to be as exceptional.

Let’s recall that World Music Day or Fête de la Musique has been 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!

Let’s discover what’s cooking on World Music Day 2018 in Paris and Île-de-France!
