21st June: Fête de la musique

Fête de la Musique takes place across France every year on 21st June. Since its launch in 1982 by the French Ministry for Culture, the same ethos has been retained – all events are free and none of the artists taking part are paid. This free event can be experienced spilling out of bars and restaurants, in the streets and squares of Chamonix. Not to be missed!

There’s something for all musical tastes – as you explore the town centre you’ll stumble across local amateurs or professionals, playing everyting from rock, folk, classical and dance music.

Even better, the summer solistice means that the rules are different, and the party continues long after normal licensing hours into the small hours of the morning!

Rates: Free of charge
