What it is

I first read about it in the Sydney Morning Herald at:
http://www.smh.com.au/news/music/power-to-the-people/2007/06/14/1181414390268.html

It’s own website is at:
http://www.musicfest.org.au/
where they say:

MusicFest is the Australian edition of "Fête de la Musique", a unique international event that takes place on 21 June each year to celebrate the summer/winter solstice. Initiated in France 26 years ago, its name and concept has spread throughout the world.

At present Fête de la Musique brings together more than 120 countries and 330 cities in an exciting live music celebration. Participating cities include London, New York, Berlin, Rome, Bamako, Tel-Aviv, Havana, Tokyo and Cairo.

The second Australian edition of the Fête will take place Thursday June 21st and Saturday June 23rd (to allow wider participation)

Street and public space music festival in Sydney and round the world.

So, Sydney musos, who’s going to get out there and show people that we exist outside the darkest corners of the dustiest rooms in the dingiest pubs in the downmarketest parts of the dirtiest old towns in the district? ;)

It is a global thing too, or so I understand, so it could be a chance for lots of us to stand up for music of and for the people as opposed to music as a commodity.

Who’s game?

You can’t wink without a nose but you can smile
