On June 21 each year, music making is celebrated all around the world, under a variety of festival names, such as: Fête de la Musique, Love Live Music or World Music Day. This tradition has been going on since 1982 and has become an international phenomenon, celebrated on the same day in more than 460 cities in 110 countries.
