Fete de la musique
Alliance Francaise, 51 Grey Street, St Kilda
This winter, la Fête de la Musique is coming to the Alliance Française for a night of free music, mulled wine, and soupe à l’oignon - uniting French tradition with Melbourne’s rich music culture.
Also known as Make Music Day, the French celebration occurs every year on the 21st of June – the northern hemisphere’s summer solstice – and allows and encourages musicians to play outside in their neighbourhoods, public spaces and parks, where spectators can enjoy live performances, all for free. The Alliance Française will be adapting the event for the Melbourne winter, opening its doors, and providing the spaces for these concerts to take place, complete with mulled wine and French onion soup.
