Fête de la Musique 2019 @The Square, Publika

Fête de la Musique (Music Day)



Since its creation by the French Ministry of Culture in 1982, this festival celebrates musical life in all its expressions and reflects its permanent dynamism.

An international echo:

Abroad, the Fête de la Musique has grown considerably, becoming a national event in several countries (Italy, Greece, Peru, Colombia, Canada, Australia, Japan....) or, in other cases, being promoted by major metropolises such as New York, Berlin or Mumbai.

By adapting to the cultural specificities of each country, the Fête de la Musique has been able to invent itself, adapt and become an emblematic international musical event.

In 2019, more than 120 countries celebrated the Fête de la Musique.

An annual event:

La Fête de la Musique traditionally takes place on June 21: in the northern hemisphere, this date corresponds to the summer solstice, and on the longest day of the year. It was born in 1982 in France and has now spread over 120 countries. First and foremost, la Fête de la musique wants to be a joyful, inclusive, rallying and festive event.

The bases of the Fête de la Musique are:
-Promotion of social inclusion
-Democratisation of musical practices through a popular and free event.
-Promotion of a meeting point for citizens.

A reference in Kuala Lumpur:

For years now, la Fête de la musique has been celebrated in Kuala Lumpur and spearheaded by the Alliance Française of Kuala Lumpur. Be it at the AFKL, in Bukit Bintang, at The Square @ Publika or online in 2021, la Fête de la musique has always been a huge success.

In 2022, we will be back with on-site live performances - to do so, we are calling on all local and talented musicians from Kuala Lumpur to be part of the line-up (20-30 mins per group).  A small gratuity will be paid to the musicians as a token of appreciation. All production and communication of the event will be the responsibility of the organisers.

La Fête de la musique 2022 in Kuala Lumpur will take place on Saturday, June 18th. Its location will be shared at a later stage.
