The French Institute of South Africa has officially opened the call for applications for the 2022 Johannesburg Fête de la Musique.
Fête de la Musique (or World Music Day) is a popular and free music festival that takes place in France annually on the day of the summer solstice. In South Africa, the Fête de la Musique is celebrated with a full day of free family-friendly concerts, which offers a great opportunity and platform to upcoming bands.
The Fête de la Musique allows everyone to discover new musical trends from traditional music to rap, hip-hop, techno, world music, musical carnival and so much more.
