What? A night of free gigs around Paris to celebrate the summer solstice
Where? Various venues around Paris
Free gigs, encompassing all music genres, take place across the country and around the world as part of this festival for the summer solstice on June 21 2017. The annual Parisian festivities for the Fête de la Musique are particularly special, with concerts taking place in theatres, bars, on street corners, in parks and even on balconies. In the past some musicians have even been known to serenade folks while teetering on the edge of their apartment windows.
As ever, to really get the most of all the planned and pop-up gigs, you can buy a €3 ticket granting you unlimited travel on public transport from 5pm on June 21 until 7am on June 22.
A complete list of official concerts is available on the Fête de la Musique 2017 website, but you can check out our pick of the best below.
