World Music Day, also known as Fete de la Musique, is a one-of-a-kind annual musical celebration held on June 21. It is sometimes referred to as Music Day or Make Music Day. On this day, new and inexperienced artists are typically encouraged to play.
World Music Day is celebrated alongside International Yoga Day. Both music and Yoga play an important role in maintaining sanity for everyone. Not just musicians, but everyone celebrates this day with full enthusiasm. Music is not just a healing therapy, it also ensures a good mood and healthy mental well-being. On this day, people step out on the streets to play and enjoy music. It is an open event where anyone can join and play music. However, with the Covid19 pandemic this year, the World Music Day celebrations are restricted to everyone’s homes. In France, the country’s Culture Ministry decided to provide people with a music holiday in the 1980s. The aim was to celebrate a day with free and live music everywhere from streets to gardens. The first World Music Day was celebrated in 1982 in France after the government announced June 21 as a National holiday on account of Fête De La Musique (festival of music).
