Description

FETE DE LA MUSIQUE 2016

18 Jun 2016

Get ready for the big party!

The Alliance Française of Johannesburg, the French Institute of South Africa and Bassline are proud to announce the 5th edition of the Fête de La Musique, taking place on Saturday June 18th 2016.

Last year over 6,000 people gathered in Newtown Junction to enjoy this celebration of music in all its forms as well as dance and street performance. With its previous success, Newtown Junction confirmed its position as the ideal location for this festive day. In 2016, 6 stages will be set up to offer a wide panel of free shows. This edition represents a new opportunity to encourage local musicians and discover new ones from around the world.

The Johannesburg general public – families, visitors, tourists, professionals – will enjoy ideal conditions in terms of security, parking and food to make the most of this festival. Since 1982, this celebration from France has been dedicated to musicians, both professionals and amateurs. Since the first edition, we have seen some of the best South African bands perform. Its aim is to reach a wide audience from novices to connoisseurs.

The 2016 Fête de la Musique is happening in just one month’s time and we are ready to unveil the names of the headlining acts. Like every year, this festive celebration is also an opportunity to introduce to Joburg some of our best international acts: jazzman Daniel Mille with his accordion, Zanmari Baré and his maloya from Reunion Island, Jess and Crabbe’s afro electronic music, and Vaudou Game’s Togolese funk.

The local line-up promises to be as diverse and powerful as the international line-up with SA’s favourite established and growing talents: Blk Jks, Bombshelter Beast, Ndyebo, Academie, Urban Village, Guy Buttery, Unity band, Morayks, Watching Over Africa, FingerPrint5, Mapumba Cilombo, Black South Easter, Ben Dey and The Concrete Lions, Hellen Dikobe, Iphupho L’ka Biko, Kevin and The, Love World, Kinsmen, Nono Nkoane, UJU and more.

We are proud and grateful to announce that once again, Total SA is supporting this event. The Fête de la Musique speaks to their heritage portfolio which is dedicated to supporting and advancing the cultural and artistic heritage across multiple disciplines.

This year Newtown will once more be the place to be on Saturday the 18th of June, with lots of surprises!
