30th anniversary of the Fête de la Musique
From a national day to the biggest musical event worldwide.
The Fête de la Musique was launched on June 21, 1982, on the summer solstice’s day, at the initiative of Jack Lang, French Minister of Culture at the time. It began its expansion in 1985 with the European year of music. Less than 15 years later, Fête de la Musique took place on the five continents.
In 2010, more than 450 cities in 116 countries worlwide have celebrated the Fête de la Musique. This free and popular event promotes live music, both amateur et professional practices and all musical styles.
This international development is the result of the involvement of the French cultural network abroad and of the local operators, which are more and more active (music academies, associations, municipalities, etc).
The Fête has grown considerably in the world, turning to a national event in several countries (Luxembourg, Italy, Greece, Nigeria, Ecuador, Colombia…) and being organised by large cities such as New York, Valparaiso or Geneva.
The Alliance française de New Delhi is pleased to invite you on Saturday 25 June, at "Florian", MGF Mall, 3rd Floor, Saket to attend concerts performed by Betty Argo and by Soulmate.
