Fête de la Musique 2012
Last thursday 21st june, we celebrated in Paris the traditional "World Music Day" ("Fête de la Musique").
The idea of the World Music Day was conceptualized first in France in 1976 by American musician Joel Cohen who proposed an all-night music celebration to mark the beginning of the summer solstice.
Since then, it has become a worldwide phenomenon with over 32 countries worldwide having their own celebrations in their own way, regardless of the season.
For this year (2012) we've organised 4 rockabilly free concerts in Paris! The Megatons, at HD Diner Opéra; The Four Aces, at HD Diner Saint Michel; Ghost Highway, at HD Diner Châtelet and Tony Marlow, at HD Diner Hôtel de Ville. It was fantastic: there were a huge number of people dancing in the street and we could feel for a moment that we were really Back to the fifties!
Thanks our partners for this great rockin' day! Thank "Rock Paradise" and "Mr Atomik" for your nice pictures!
