Fête de la Musique

Fête de la Musique

This music festival knows no borders and invites itself to Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Daliang (Shunde), Ningbo, Shanghai and Wuhan!

Created by Jack Lang in 1982, at that time Minister of Culture, the Fête de la musique is a popular festival dedicated to music, to jazz as well as pop and rock, to classical music as well as world music.  It has been a great success since its inception. Today adopted around the world, it is celebrated on five continents, in more than 100 countries with 450 participating cities, with the cities of Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing, Shanghai, Shunde and Wuhan joining the celebrations over the past seven years.

An internationally successful phenomenon, the Fête de la musique spreads new musical trends such as a revival of traditional music, an explosion of world music, choral developments and the appearance of rap, techno – a wonderful musical carnival. In France, as in China, the Fête de la musique broadens access to artistic and cultural works, making June the month of musical discovery; a meeting of styles and audiences. 

Beijing

The year 2015 will be the 4th edition of the Fête de la musique in Beijing. Musical diversity will be celebrated as every year with rock, jazz and folk, but also hip-hop and experimental music. The network of participating sites is expanding with concerts in the Gulou area, but also in the festive areas of Sanlitun and the artistic punk sanctuary of Tongzhou.

Music will bring the capital of the Middle Kingdom to life in a multitude of venues, such as the big stage at Mao Livehouse, the intimate 69, the French lair Café de la Poste, the Beijing jazz mecca of East Shore Live Jazz Café, the mysterious Fu Bar and other top music venues in the city. As music travels round the capital, come and discover, the time of a summer Sunday, the latest avant-garde Chinese sounds or rediscover groups that contribute to the lively Beijing music scene today. A new addition to the programme this year is a huge public workshop to enable the city’s music-lovers to contribute, in their own way, to the musical spectrum set to rock the Chinese capital on June 21.
