  • Travelers rock out at Paris' le Fête de la Musique

    2010-03-02

    Most international travelers don't need an excuse to head to the city of lights in the summertime, yet this June provides the perfect opportunity for tourists to hop an early summer flight to Paris, as millions of international music fans will descend on the French capital to participate in le Fête de la Musique.

    Le Fête de la Musique is a street music festival that was created in 1982 by then Minister of Music and Dance, Maurice Fleuret. Finding that some 5 million Parisians, including 1 in 2 children, played some form of instrument, Fleuret envisioned an event in which all musicians, amateur and professional, could perform together.

    What emerged from this idea was a city-wide celebration of all things musical, that sees musicians of virtually every genre crowding into bars, cafes and restaurants, setting up drum kits in public parks - even lining the streets - and performing free shows throughout the night for all who would listen.

    Official event performers represent a broad cross-section of musical styles including rock, hip-hop, R&B, reggae, classical, world music, electronic and jazz. The event occurs every year on the summer solstice, June 25 at sundown.
