World Music Day ("Fête de la musique") in Paris
In 1981, the city elected a new Director of Music and Dance. His name was Maurice Fleuret, and he is best remembered for his “Music everywhere, concerts nowhere” slogan.
His main goal was to bring together all kinds of music - “music lacking hierarchy in terms of genre and origin.”
Teaming up with Jack Lang and Christian Dupavillon, he decided to organize a grassroots event where all musicians could express themselves and make their music known.
So the very first World Music Day (“Fête de la Musique”) took place on June 21, 1982, the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
Every year since, on this same day, the city abounds with a variety of different musical acts, allowing everyone to find the style that suits them best: jazz, electronica, classical, middle of the road, pop, rock, etc. The festivities are organized both by professionals and amateurs alike, by musicians who share a love for music.
