La Vie à Lyon

Living, learning and loving in Lyon !

Play that funky rock, jazz, reggae, didge…

One of the (many) reasons I organised my move to France in mid-June 2011 was so that I wouldn’t miss the annual Fête de la Musique on June 21st. Funnily enough (or not), I did miss it, thanks to the torrential rain and thunderstorms we had! 2012, however, worked out.

As the name suggests, the Fête de la Musique is an all day and all night musical extravaganza, with amateur and professional musicians playing on the street/in bars/in métro stations all over the country. I ran around Lyon like a crazy lady, trying to take it all in. There were break dancers, an alternative marching band, three-piece rockers tucked away in tiny corners, pipe-playing Native Americans and even a didge player!

Even better – all the gigs are free!
