First Festival of Music
Première Fête de la Musique 21_06_1982

Announced as «the greatest musical event ever organized» under the slogan «Party (Make) of music!» , the first edition of a festival that has since become international brings together five million musicians, amateurs and professionals. Originally oriented towards the enhancement of the musical practice of all and the abolition of the hierarchy between «scholarly» and «popular» art, it was subsequently professionalized, with a dominant «music of today» and a concentration in the big cities.
