Upcoming: La Fête de la Musique


World Music Day is upon us again folks – and by World Music Day I mean La Fete de la Musique – the annual summer solstice music celebration, which got its start in France during the 70s, and has spread across the world since then. Last year the organizers managed to snag fourteen venues to partcipate in the merry fun – and this year they’ve shat all over that number – with a staggering thirty-four venues throwing down this year – from music haven Dos Kolegas, to microbrew peeps Malty Dog, and even coffee houses. Basically, if you step into any establishment in Gulou, come this Friday, June 21st, you’re bound to run into some drunken musical shenanigans. And best of all, it’s all super duper free. I\’d put my money on Dos Kolegas\’s mega lineup on the outdoor stage (though after hearing of Saturday\’s clusterfuck of a show they might be skeptical) unless you have the juices to barhop around Gulou, which is a pretty ace idea, and definitely keeps with the spirit of the festival. Check out their website here which is mighty nice, and click below for the full line lineup, as well some cute maps for all you folks who can’t find their way around Gulou yet. Noobs.
