One of the most popular events held at Alliance Française de Bangalore, the World Music Day, is celebrated every year.

The Fête de la Musique, also known as the World Music Day, began in France in 1982, and is today celebrated across the world.

What is special about the event held here in Bangalore and elsewhere is that concerts are all free and musicians, both amateur and professional, share their passion with the audience.

All music enthusiasts are known to flock to this famous cultural hub.

Musicians, singers, bands — right from classical to jazz, pop, hip-hop, rock or heavy metal — who wish to take part in the 2011 edition, can write to culture.afbangalore@afindia.org or call 40808181 before 20 May 2011.

The 2011 edition of the World Music Day will witness concerts on June 18, 19, 20 and 21.
