The “Fête de la Musique,” also known as Make Music Day, is an international celebration of music, first started in France as an initiative by the French Minister of Culture. Like every year, 2016 Make Music Day will coincide with the summer solstice, this year on Tuesday, June 21st. Musicians from the region will take to the streets and the bars throughout the city to honor this 35th annual celebration. Come see what it’s all about and join in the celebration of music!
Every year, Make Music Day takes on a fun and special theme. Last year, it was a “Living Music Together” theme. This year will be the 35th anniversary of Make Music, and organizers want this years festival to create a buzz, with the theme: “Music is stronger than…”
This year, June 21st will be the main day of the celebration, but with the Euro 2016 also being held in France this year around the same time, there will be various street parades and events a few days before and after Make Music Day, turning it into more of a Make Music Week, with events ranging from Saturday, June 18th to Saturday, June 25th, 2016.
The program organized by the Minister of Culture and Communication at the Palais Royal will take place from Sunday, June 19th to Friday, June 24th. All of the details will be released in the beginning of June, so check back for more information!
The "Fête de la Musique" was created in 1982 by the Minister of Culture in France, originally called “Faites de la Musique, Fête de la Musique” (Make Music, Music Day). This slogan quickly became a motto, not only in France, but soon across dozens of other countries. The mobilization of professional and amateur musicians, and the new attention drawn to all types of music created an immediate public following, and successfully carried out a policy that was intended to give a voice to all musicians, from amateur to professional, from rock, jazz, singer-songwriter to traditional musicians and more.
With its free concerts, covered closely by the media and sponsored by the SACEM and and the regional authorities, Make Music would become in just a few years one of the largest and most attended annual celebrations in France.
It was in 1985, during a year-long European music celebration that Make Music started to make its way to other countries. Less than 15 years later, Make Music Day was already celebrated in over 100 countries, and on 5 continents!
If you haven’t seen it before, this year is your chance! Don’t miss the 2016 Make Music celebrations, on Tuesday, June 21st!
