Fête de la Musique joins 75 festivals for We Vote For Europe

The Fête de la Musique is all about inclusion, togetherness, cultures mixing and mashing it up, no borders and general hugs and cuddles.

Which is, as we see it, what the European project is also all about (especially the hugs and cuddles). We don’t want borders, we don’t want drawbridges being drawn up, we don’t want isolationism, no! Europe is a melting pot and that’s exactly what it should be – and where can you better see that than in music?

Which is why we think it’s important to vote for Europe. To add your voice. And it turns out it’s not just us that think that way: a new initiative has been started, which brings nearly 100 festivals across Europe together to say one thing: #WeVoteForEurope.

If we look around at some of the people who might actually end up being MEPs (especially from a certain green and pleasant land which shall remain nameless), it quickly becomes apparent just how important it is that everyone who’s in any way sane goes and makes sure to put their vote forward.

Europe is what we make it; it’ll become what we allow it to become. Which is why you should go and vote at the European parliament elections from 23-26 May!

This #WeVoteForEurope campaign is an initiative of YOUROPE (European Festival Association) for the European Parliamentary Elections from 23-26 May.
