La Fête de la Musique
Date: 11 Jun 2021, 10:00am - 11:30am (GMT+08:00) Perth
Every year, in France, on June 21th for 40 years, we celebrate the arrival of summer in music. It is a great popular festival that we invite to discover through great hits.
The first all-day musical celebration on the day of the summer solstice was originated by Jack Lang, Minister of
Culture of France, as well as by Maurice Fleuret. He applied his reflections to the musical practice and its evolution: "the
music everywhere and the concert nowhere". When he discovered, in a 1982 study on the cultural habits of the French, that five million
people, one young person out of two, played a musical instrument, he began to dream of a way to bring people out on the streets. It first
took place in 1982 in Paris as the Fête de la Musique.
Ever since, the festival has become an international phenomenon, celebrated on the same day in more than 700 cities in 120 countries, including Ecuador, China, India, Germany, Italy, Greece, Russia, Australia, Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, the United States, the UK, and Japan.
