Fete de la musique / Paris Music Day – Paris 2016

A quick and dirty guide to celebrating the biggest music day (kind of city-wide free music festival ) in Paris. ?June 21 is awaited every summer to kick off the warm weather and (even more) leisurely days. Get out to the bars, bistros and benches!

Our list is mostly categorized by genres of Jazz, Reggae, Rock and Electro – it’s a diverse mix that includes some funky mash-ups of Rock being played on Church steps and Reggae in Tree houses in the Park.
