Every imaginable genre is represented at Music Day, including opera and classical, jazz and electro, world music, rock, pop and indie.

A diverse selection of venues will throw open their doors, allowing you to catch musical performances in the capital's famous gardens and parks, museums and galleries, universities and schools or cafes and restaurants.

An event that attracts participants of every age group

There really is something for everyone at Fete de la Musique and this friendly and inspiring music festival appeal to every age group. Even the youngest members of the family will love joining in singing sessions in the park, while those with more refined tastes will find the symphonies and classical shows at the glittering Grand Palais irresistible.
