Paris is a capital destination for music. The idea of a day devoted to celebrating music, ‘La Fête de la Musique’, was created in the city in 1982 and offers a large and eclectic choice of music. There is something for all tastes, from big concerts to more intimate venues, baroque music, rock and techno, etc. There are also exhibitions, museums and specialist shops… So get in the groove for music day!
