On 21st June, people in more than 120 countries will celebrate the 35th World Music Day. Since 1982, they’ve listened to, performed and created music of all genres, at events that were free and open to the public. And it will continue this year. 

World Music Day is sometimes referred to as Fête de la Musique. And it is, indeed, a French invention. The brainchild of Jack Lang, former French Minister for Culture, the event was a response to a survey which showed that one in two French youngsters played an instrument. 

M. Lang wanted to create an event that would allow people free access to musical performances (which up to then were often reserved for the wealthier elements of society). And so, World Music Day was born.
