festa della musica | milano | 21.22.23 june 2012

The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is a music festival taking place on June 21. The idea was first broached in 1976 by American musician Joel Cohen, then employed by the national French radio station France Musique. Cohen proposed an all-night music celebration at the moment of the summer solstice. The idea was taken up by French Music and Dance director Maurice Fleuret for Minister of Culture Jack Lang in 1981 and first took place in 1982 in Paris.Its purpose is to promote music in two ways:
*    Amateur and professional musicians are encouraged to perform in the streets. The slogan Faites de la musique (Make music), a homophone of Fête de la Musique, is used to promote this goal;
*    Many free concerts are organized, making all genres of music accessible to the public. Two of the caveats to being sanctioned by the official Fête de la Musique organization in Paris are that all concerts must be free to the public, and all performers donate their time for free (source: wikipedia);
In Italy, la Festa della Musica, will take place at Fornalini Park, June 21-22-23 but there won’t just be music this year! This year, there will also be an area devoted to health and wellbeing – yoga, massages, organic low-cal food, teas – a real chilled out area to enjoy the start of the summer sorrounded by nature! What more could one ask!
