The Fête de la Musique also known as the "World Music Day" is held annually on June 21 throughout the world and celebrates this year its 30th edition. It is currently celebrated in over 110 countries, 470 cities on five continents. This cultural event aims to encourage amateur musicians to show their talent for free in the streets and public spaces. With the organization of numerous free concerts, amateurs of professionals, it allows a large audience to have access to the music of all kinds and origins (classical, jazz, rock, world music, traditional music, etc.) and even those sung in any language.
