A day of free events to celebrate the universal language of music, Music Day is a connected set of free public events which takes place each year on the 21st June. Last year there were events in 108 countries and 726 cities around the world, not including France where there were too many events to count!

Check out some photos from last years events.

The event is also known as Fête de la Musique(www.fetedelamusique.culture.fr) (orWorld Music Day) and originated in France in 1982. Since then the idea has spread across the globe with each event holding to the same simple set of principles: that the day is held on the mid-summer solstice and that all concerts and events are free and accessible to the public.

Typically this means that the music is brought out onto the streets, though venues are also encouraged to get in on the act!


They are looking for organisers, venues or promoters to host their own Music Day event or musicians of all ages, amateur or professional, who are interested in finding gigs.
