The Fête de la Musique, is also known as Music Day, Make Music Day or World Music Day. It is a first of its kind as a music celebration that truly showcases music. It takes place yearly on the month of June.
How does it work?
Usually, On Music Day the avid music fans in a city or country are allowed and urged to play music outside in their neighborhoods or in public spaces and parks. With FREE concerts being the main crowd getter – it is where musicians play for fun and not for payment.
The first all-day musical celebration on the day of the solstice was originated by the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, and by Maurice Fleuret, and was first celebrated in Paris in 1982. Music Day later became celebrated in 120 countries around the world.
Music Day on June 23 , all over Makati
This coming June 23 & 24, amateur and professional musicians are set to perform in selected bars, pubs and fields in Makati, under the slogan “Make music”, a homophone of Fête de la Musique.
This is in celebratory tone of our universal love for all that is music , the guys over at Alliance Francaise de Manille and the French Embassy in the Philippines has been celebrating it in Manila since the late 90s. And this year won’t be an exception. With over 20 stages all over Makati, it is a definite show that most aficionados await.
Some of the most prominent stages are the Rock Stage, Indie Stage, Acoustic Stage, Reggae Stage, Punk Stage, Jazz, , Hip Hop, Blues-Soul Funk, Electronic, RnB, Grunge, World Music, OPM, Bedroom Beats Stage (Earth, Sun & Moon), and a whole lot more.
