World Music Day, also called Make Music Day, is a festival that celebrates music in all different forms. The holiday began in France, where it was called Fête de la Musique, to celebrate music on the day of the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. Cities all around the world now celebrate this holiday.
The idea of World Music Day is to fill the atmosphere with as much music as possible. Street musicians flood the streets to bring music to every commuter and free concerts are held wherever possible so that people can enjoy music even if they can’t usually afford to pay for concerts. The best thing about World Music Day is that you don’t have to be a professional to be involved in the celebration. You can take your own music to the streets no matter who you are.
