World Music Day is an event that “celebrates music in all its forms and the impact it’s had on the world and the human spirit”. Also known as Fête de la Musique, Music Day, or Make Music Day, World Music Day is celebrated each year on June 21 and encourages music to be played outside – on the streets, in parks, and public areas. 

The first World Music Day was celebrated in Paris in 1982, and is celebrated in 120 countries around the world today.
