Fête de la Musique or World Music day was created in 1982 by the minister of culture of France, M. Jack Lang. Organised each year since on the 21st of June, the summer solstice, this day aims at celebrating music in all its forms, with all musicians, be they amateurs or professionals. This is a day dedicated to making music, in various kinds of spaces (streets, in cafes and concert halls), sharing the passion for music. This main idea is to make music freely accessible to all. Created 39 years ago, it has been embraced by a large number of countries, cities, all over the world, to celebrate a common love for music.
