Fête de la Musique History
Fête de la Musique was conceived by American musician Joel Cohen in 1976 while he was working at a radio station in France.
He proposed an all-night music celebration during the summer solstice, which was recognized by the French Minister of Culture, and subsequently held in France in 1982.
