The beginning of summer belongs to the Fête de la Musique. After a brilliant return to the stages of the city and with many tens of thousands of spectators last year, we are already looking forward to the beginning of summer on June 21, 2023 and to your contribution to the Fête de la Musique Berlin. Seven months before the longest day of the year, we are now starting the application phase for the music venues. In January we will continue with the call to the musicians of the city. We are looking forward to your creativity, your ideas and your remarkable and voluntary efforts to ensure that so many people in our city can enjoy music on June 21.
Make music – Faîtes de la Musique! This is the call that has been heard around June 21st for 40 years. In Paris. In Berlin. All over the world. Music has the power to bring us closer together, to create community, to remove what divides us, at least temporarily, and to fill a place, an entire city, with positive energy.
The Fête de la Musique has this power. It knows neither stylistic nor social barriers. Everyone is allowed to participate – as creators on or behind the stage, as listeners and dancers. The Fête de la Musique is a celebration of all for all. And it is a celebration of sharing and inviting gestures.
This is the core of the Fête de la Musique and this is the core we would like to emphasize, strengthen and promote on June 21st, 2023 in Berlin: be there for each other, make music together and for each other. On which other day of the year can people enjoy hundreds of concerts in all districts of the city without paying admission? On which other day do so many institutions, established houses and renowned ensembles open up to new audiences? On which other day do completely unknown musicians have the chance to play on big stages in front of unexpectedly large audiences?
Also save the date, spread the word und FAITES DE LA MUSIQUE!
