Direct from the Alliance Francaise in The Hague.

After a first edition of FETE DE LA MUSIQUE in The Hague on June 21, 2013 ENTENTE FRANCOPHONE, national Dutch Federation of Francophone non for profit organizations in the Netherlands, set-up again a big concert on June 21 this year at the Maritiem Museum in Rotterdam. Some 10 music groups and soloists from various musical horizons from classic to jazz, from French chanson to choir music… entertained the audience of this free and very “gezellig” event.

Completely different from other music festivals, the FETE DE LA MUSIQUE is above all a free popular fête, open to any participant (amateur or professional musicians) who wants to perform in it. This “Music day” allows the expression of all styles of music in a cheerful atmosphere. It aims at a large audience, working to popularize musical practice for young and not so young people from all social backgrounds. It gives an opportunity to communicate and share a very special moment through music.

Launched in 1982 by the French Ministry for culture, the FETE DE LA MUSIQUE is held in more than hundred countries in Europe and over the world. It takes place every 21st June, the day of the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere.
Thanks to the impulse and the dynamism of the French cultural network abroad (the departments of Cultural Affairs at the French Embassies, the French Institutes and Alliances Françaises… the Fête has an important international growth.

FETE DE LA MUSIQUE is invented again and again every year, taking care of each country cultural specificities. In this way, it will become a real emblematic international event to promote music and “music making” for professionals and amateur musicians. The annual event organized by ENTENTE FRANCOPHONE in the Netherlands especially attracts the French and Francophone community, but the doors are wide open for everyone and Music is probably the most universal language of all in the world.

ENTENTE FRANCOPHONE and Alliance Francaise are already starting to prepare June 21st 2015, with a big gathering that could take place in Amsterdam next year.
