Fête de la Musique 2012

For the 31st edition, the national music festival will be getting it's 'Pop' on.


Completely different from a music festival, the Fête de la Musique is above all a free popular fête, open to any participant (amateur or professional musicians) who wants to perform in it. This Music day allows the expression of all styles of music in a cheerful atmosphere. It aims at a large audience, working to popularise musical practice for young and not so young people from all social backgrounds. It gives an opportunity to communicate and share a very special moment through music.

There will be more than 10 stages throughout the city with a selection of some of the best bands and musicians from Bordeaux.

The major locations in the city will be:

  • Conservatoire de Bordeaux Jacques Thibaud > Soundscapes and Images
  • Parc des sports Saint-Michel > Alternative

  • Pey-Berland > Classical
