Story

What is World Music Day?

World Music Day as we know it in the UK evolved from The Fête de la Musique, which originated in France by Maurice Fleuret. The first Fête de la Musique took place in Paris in 1982 and ever since the festival has become an international phenomenon, celebrated World-Wide every year on the 21 June.

Love music? Help Musicians on World Music Day

Help Musicians is a charity that is focused on helping musicians fulfil their potential, regardless of their genre. A life in music is one where successes are hard-won and challenges can come along all too easily, with unsteady income and physical and mental health concerns common issues to navigate. Whatever stage a musician is at, Help Musicians can help provide the skills and resources needed to keep musicians thriving.

Help Musicians' Sister charity Music Minds Matter puts mental wellbeing centre stage in music. It works proactively to help prevent mental health crises, providing everybody who works in music with the early support, knowledge and tools they need, at exactly the time they need them.
