The Alliance Française de Brisbane and Wynnum Central are proud to present the 2015 Fete de la Musique which is, arguably, the largest live music event in the world. Brisbane's Bayside Fete de la Musique kicks off this Sunday, 21 June, 2015 at 9.00am.
It is completely FREE to come on down to Wynnum and enjoy the music where you will have no need for tickets, reserving seats or queueing for vantage points. All you're going to get is great music in a lovely place where you can relax and enjoy the experience.
The Bayside's Fete de la Musique is part of the international music festival held every year on 21st June developed by the French Government in 1982 and held in 450 cities around the world. So join the world-wide movement generating music and pleasure and soak up some sun by the bay, listen to some very talented local artists and stroll arm in arm with your nearest and dearest along the promenade at Wynnum.

You can also enjoy a coffee at one of Wynnum's many chic cafes as you experience the ambiance and soak up the festive atmosphere. Or, perhaps, you might want to check out a bookshop or, if you're game enough, have a dip in the bay. It's your day and it's there to be enjoyed.
The Fete de la Musique is not your usual music festival. It is a popular fête where the music has no boundaries of genre or application but always takes place in a completely cheerful atmosphere. Musicians aim their creations at large audiences and work to popularise their musical practice for young and not so young people of all social backgrounds. This day of music celebration gives an opportunity to communicate and share a very special moment through music.
The Fete de la Musique is held on the 21 June every year all around the globe on the Northern hemisphere's midsummer's day. For us however, it's Midwinter's day and the only day of the year when anyone and everyone is encouraged to play music in the street when it can be played without a permit.
For those of us with absolutely no musical talent or abilities we don't have to pay to listen to the music and, unfortunately for them, the musicians don't get paid for their efforts.
If, however, you are a musician and can play an instrument or sing, and would like to take the opportunity to join in on this special occasion feel free to get in contact by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07 3040 1972 to make arrangements for your own special spot to be allotted to you for the day.

I just rocked up today (Saturday) to hear the music, got it wrong but had a walk around Wynnum Central and found some interesting places I didn't know where there so all was not lost. Will check if out tomorrow !
