The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is an annual music festival taking place on June 21, the first day of summer in cities around the world.
The concept of an all-day musical celebration on the days of the solstice, was originated by American musician Joel Cohen, who spent two seasons as a producer of musical radio programs for the French National Radio (France Musique). The idea later was adapted as a national celebration each June 21 in France. The idea was embraced and made official by the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang.
In Korea, we also embraced this idea so that promote public’s understanding toward Gebrauchsmusik(practical music) and goodwill. Come visit our center and enjoy the music festival.
