World Music Day Today

Music brings the world closer. Not just words, there are notes, songs, and tunes to express every emotion. To mark its significance, music lovers all across the globe get together to celebrate World Music Day on June 21 every year. The day is also known as Fete de la Musique after a music festival that began in France in 1982.

It is said that the French minister of culture Jack Lang conceived the idea of music through this fest and since then, it has been celebrated as the World Music Day. However, there is another theory about how the American musician Joel Cohen proposed the idea of an all-night music celebration in France to mark the beginning of the summer solstice in 1976 and since then, the entire world celebrates this day.
