FÊTE DE LA MUSIQUE - A summer solstice music festival!
Saturday, June 21 @ Sofitel, 806 15th Street NW, Washington DC
Join the worldwide celebration and take in the universal language of music while enjoying a groovy lunch, a laidback sundowner or an upbeat funky night.
Inspired by France’s Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, the Alliance Francaise, Sofitel and Art Soiree will play host to a daylong summer journey across the musical worlds.
Come discover the vibrant and eclectic sounds of new local artists and musicians, or simply enjoy the summer out, with good music, food, drinks, and friends.
Taking place at Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square, the festival will transform it into a haven where musicians, music enthusiasts, artists, food lovers, families, locals and guests of town alike will collide for an all-day musical experience, filling the city with an outpouring of rhythm and sound. It will provide a unique opportunity for all Washingtonians to be a part of a worldwide celebration that began in France and now takes place every year on June 21 in hundreds of countries around the world.
