The Music Day 2024: A Global and Local Celebration in Annecy

Every June 21st is a symphony of musical discoveries and shared moments. Initiated in 1982 by Jack Lang, then Minister of Culture, and Maurice Fleuret, Director of Music and Dance, this celebration honors music in all its forms, from professional to amateur, free of charge, for everyone's enjoyment.

Looking Back at the History of a Global Event

In 1981, a survey revealed that 5 million French people played a musical instrument, but few had the opportunity to share their passion. This inspired the idea of the Fête de la Musique: a celebration of music for everyone, held on June 21, the summer solstice. From its first edition in 1982, the event was an immediate success, with musicians taking over streets, bars, and kiosks, and thousands joining the festivities until late at night.

An International Expansion

Starting in 1985, the Fête de la Musique began to be exported abroad. In less than 10 years, it was present in 85 countries, and today, it is celebrated in 120 countries across more than a thousand cities. This global enthusiasm reflects the universality of music and the joy it brings.

Celebrate Music at Hotel Le Pélican

Hôtel Le Pélican invites you to an exceptional evening on the Ô Cèdre terrace. Starting at 6:30 PM, the Pariswing group will enchant the evening with a captivating live performance. This quartet, featuring a singer, a double bassist, a saxophonist, and a guitarist, will transport you from Broadway theaters to the streets of Saint-Germain-des-Prés.
