Fête de la Musique - 4th edition
The Alliance Francaise of Johannesburg, the French Institute of South Africa and the Bassline present the 4th edition of Fête de La Musique on Saturday 27 June 2015, from 10 am to 7 pm, in Newtown.
With 5 000 people in 2012, 8 000 people in 2013 and 10 000 people in 2014, the Fête de la Musique in Johannesburg has established itself as the fastest growing festival brand in South Africa.
Taking place in the Newtown historical cultural hub and based on last year’s success, the event promises to be bigger and better in 2015!
For this 4th edition, the entire Newtown neighbourhood will be brought to life with multiple live performances spread throughout all areas. It will be turned into a pedestrian friendly zone for visitors, from 10 am to 7 pm, to truly enjoy the programme of live music and other artistic performances in restaurants, bars and on various stages. From 7 pm to 2 am, Newtown venues will run their own programming.
The Fête de La Musique welcomes everyone, especially families, to enjoy the diversity and excitement of Newtown. It promises to be a fun and exciting showcase of diverse local music, theatre, dance, poetry, food and much more, celebrated in a safe and inclusive atmosphere that brings communities together in what is a popular and free event.
