Uncategorised

6th September

Fête de la Musique (or World Music Day) Joburg is back on the 18th of September 2021 and will be happening at four venues in the city for the first time. The popular and free music festival, established in 2010, has become a great platform for a diverse range of renowned and upcoming talents to make themselves known in South Africa.

Fête de la Musique Joburg 2021 will take place at Newtown Junction; Orlando West Soweto’s Hector Pieterson Memorial; Victoria Yards in Bertrams, and Alliance Française in Parkview, between 12 pm-5 pm. Entrance is free with limited capacity to ensure everyone’s safety; attendees are encouraged to adhere to strict all Covid -19 protocols.

“After the postponement of Fête de la Musique in Johannesburg, we are ready and counting down to this highly anticipated musical showcase. We are excited to be back at Newtown Junction, which followers of the festival will be familiar with. Our partners at Alliance Française will play host to music lovers in the Northern suburbs, and other attendees will see some of their favourite musical acts at the vibrant Victoria Yards. We are also honoured to partner with the Hector Pieterson Memorial to bring the music to Soweto. We are proud to be playing our part in supporting the South African music industry, which has been devastatingly impacted by the pandemic. We look forward to seeing everyone again under strict and safe Covid-19 protocols.” – Sophie Boulé, Cultural Attaché Embassy of France in South Africa.
