21/06: Fête de la Musique
The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is a music festival taking place on June 21. It is a day on which the world celebrates the magical gift of music. Its purpose is to promote music in two ways: Amateur and professional musicians are encouraged to perform in the streets. Many free concerts are organized, making all genres of music accessible to the public. Two of the caveats to being sanctioned by the official Fête de la Musique organization are that all concerts must be free to the public, and all performers donate their time for free.
