The city of Lviv joins into a worldwide celebration of Fete de la Musique on Summer Solstice—June 21. On the longest day of the year, the entire downtown turns into a huge music stage, featuring dozens of outdoor and indoor small and big concerts. For 12 hours, from 10 am through 10 pm, the city's streets, parks, squares, balconies, or other queer spots showcase music in all possible genres, including hip-hop, folk, jazz, and punk-rock.

All performances at the music festival in Lviv are free of charge and open to the public, since the main aim of the occasion is to bring live music as it is in every manifestation to every soul. After all, music has a unique superpower able to unite and move people, regardless of their age, origin, social status, belief, or taste.

Likewise, Fete de la Musique Lviv sets no essential limits regarding participants. You can discover amateurs and little-known artists along with professional musicians and bands. To participate, you have to feel like playing music on June 21 and organize your performance by yourself. Such concerts are quite out-of-ordinary and often contain a lot of improvisation and surprise.

The original Fete de la Musique was a national holiday in France in 1982, and the festival's fame spread across the globe and throughout the continents. Today, a similar festival of music is observed in 120 countries and 800 cities. It's the largest international music celebration, uniting nations, cultural traditions, and performers of different genres and styles.
