The Fête de la Musique, also known in English as Music Day, Make Music Day or World Music Day, is an annual music celebration that takes place on 21 June.

In October 1981, Maurice Fleuret as Director of Music and Dance at the French Ministry of Culture, laid the foundations for a new concept: “Music will be everywhere and the concert will be nowhere!” His vision evoked a revolution in the field of music. On Music Day, citizens and residents are urged to play music outside in their neighbourhoods or in public spaces and parks.

To get in the mood, and to further celebrate our love of music this day and all year round, find below a collection of books, right across the age ranges to champion music.
