Fête de la Musique is the largest international live music event in the world! Developed by the French Government in 1982, Fête de la Musique is held in 450 cities across the globe on the very same day each year – 21 June. The aim of the event is to make music everywhere, to celebrate music and to expose as many people to music as possible.
Fête de la Musique originated in France in 1982 and has since become a worldwide celebration (450 cities in 116 countries). It is above all a free popular event promoting live music by amateur or professional musicians. This Music day allows the expression
of all styles of music in a cheerful atmosphere and aims to popularise musical practices for a wide public from all social backgrounds. Twenty two bands will be performing in six different venues around the City of Port Phillip: the St Kilda Library, the Australian
National Academy of Music (ANAM), the Dogs’ Bar, Readings, the Alliance Française and the St Kilda Memo. This year, a closing night concert featuring popular Melbourne bands will take place at the St Kilda Memo. Heading the bill will be The Orbweavers, Kim
