International Music Day!
The Fête de la musique, "Music day", is a free and live music celebration destined to celebrate, through the shared passion of music, the cultural links between countries and people.
It takes place on June 21st, the day of the summer solstice, and involves the entire population and all musical styles. Amateurs and professionals, young and not so young, everyone is welcome to either play or listen and participate in expressing their love of music.
This year is special as it is the 25th anniversary of this event, which originated in France in 1982 but is now celebrated in more than 250 cities in 100 countries worldwide.
By taking part in the June 21st Music Day festivities, Sri Lanka will be adding its unique voice to a truly international celebration!
