This year's Fête de la Musique postponed to spring 2021 for more safety for everyone.

This month the popular music festival, Fête de la Musique, put out a call for musicians and DJs to apply to perform at the annual event due to happen in Johannesburg on the 19th of June.  After receiving the highest amount of entries in the Fête de la Musique's history in South Africa, organizers have decided to postpone the event due to the 3rd wave of Covid 19. The Fête de la Musique will happen when it is safer to stage music festivals, keeping its promise of safety while enjoying entertainment.

The Fête de la Musique (or World Music Day) is a popular and free music festival that has been taking place each year in France, internationally and in South Africa since 2010. In Johannesburg it has become a great platform for both renowned and upcoming talents to make themselves known. Many local and international artists have taken part in the event throughout the years and contributed to its success, including Samthing Soweto, Msaki, Nakhane, Zoe Modiga, Blk Jks, Urban Village, BCUC, Berita, Baenz Oester and the Rainmakers, Bombshelter Beast, and Vaudou Game.

Said the Cultural Attaché of the French Embassy Selen Daver: "September is the new target for Fête de La Musique. The Fête is now a recognized event of the musical agenda in Johannesburg and it is here to stay. The 334 applications received in one week is a strong sign of this. The quality of entrants has been very strong and we look forward to announcing the amazing 14 acts who have been chosen to perform at Fête de la Musique 2021."

On 21st June, World Music Day, tune in on Fête de la Musique social media for the announcement of the 2021 shortlisted artists and the release of the full line-up.

The Fête de la Musique Joburg is brought to you by the French Institute of South Africa and the Alliance Française of Johannesburg, in partnership with Bassline Live and Newtown Junction. It is made possible by the continuous support of TOTAL South Africa to the arts.
