It’s free, it’s fun and it’s all about celebrating the unifying power of live music! On Saturday 8 June Protected content , Newtown will again turn into a festive pedestrian zone when the eighth annual Fête de la Musique parties into Johannesburg.

This popular festival of music and pan-continental expression is once again brought to Joburg audiences by the Alliance Française of Johannesburg and the French Institute of South Africa (IFAS), with the support of Total South Africa and in partnership with Bassline Live, the Market Theatre Foundation, Trace, Newtown Junction, Workshop Newtown and News Café.

Between 11am and 7pm on the day, French, South African and international music acts – both professional and emerging – will perform at this free music event that has steadily grown in stature and popularity over the years.

Come one, come all, for the street party of the year! For more information on the Fête de la Musique’s Protected content in Joburg, and the full programme will soon be available on Protected content
