In 1982, France’s Minister of Culture Jack Lang and French composer and music journalist Maurice Fleuret organized the very first Fête de la Musique in Paris. Twenty-five years on, Fête has become a global phenomenon that inspires music through free-for-all annual events in 700 cities in 120 countries.

Ever since it came to the Philippines, Fête de la Musique has become the most attended and most recognized French event in the country. Now, on its 25th anniversary, the music fest is once again happening on several stages across Metro Manila and in six other cities in the country, with additional 52 pocket stages that will host diverse music genres.

To celebrate its milestone year, Fête de la Musique is giving away round-trip tickets to France through a social media contest using the hashtag #FeteStories. To join, fans must post a 25-second video of their fondest memories of Fête de la Musique through the years.
