Fete de la Musique

Saturday Jun 18 12:00–18:00       Cnr Miriam Makeba and Carr Sts, Newtown
The annual free music festival Fête de la Musique, organised by the Institut Français launched in South Africa in 2010 and is always one of the most popular events of the Joburg winter. Hosted under the slogan 'Free Music For All' it offers something for everyone with jazz, pop, classical, rock, soul, indie and funk all on the programme.

The festival takes place at four different venues across Joburg and Soweto, all on the same day, namely: Newtown Junction, Native Rebels in Soweto, Victoria Yards, and the Alliance Française in Parkview. The multi-venue setup presents a fresh and exciting way to spread live music to more corners of the city. 

There are 22 different acts on this year's lineup represented a broad array of genres. Headline acts for this year's festival include BCUC, Brenda Mtambo, Urban Village, and Azah.
