Souk Madinat Jumeirah to Showcase World Music

10 Jun 2014

See local bands and singers... free!

World Music Day is happening soon, and French Cultural Centre Alliance Française is celebrating by holding a free concert!

La Fête de la Musique allows all people with a passion for music to gather and take part in the performance, whether they're amateur or professional musicians.

Launched in 1982 by the French Ministry of Culture, it's held in more than 100 countries each year on 21 June, the day of the northern hemisphere's summer solstice.

This makes it completely different from a conventional music festival, and Alliance Française's event no fewer than 15 acts from across the UAE.

This year is the last time la Fête de la Musique will be celebrated in the Gulf, as for the next three years, 21 June will fall during Ramadan, so you'd best head down to Souk Madinat Jumeirah to check it out!
