Fete de la Musique

Music and excitement all over France last night!!

The annual Fête de la Musique takes place on June 21, giving people the chance to dance long into the night.

Towns and villages play host to musicians and artists offering everything from classical favourites to new and original music.

On the Fête de la Musique website you can track down a wide selection of different events taking place across the country.

The Fête de la Musique started in 1982 and has gone on to feature in many other countries including Germany, Ireland as well as the UK.

("A Long Day of Summer Music", This French Life)

Wouldn't this be a great idea for up and growing new Catalyst churches all over France to use their own church bands, or for us to help bring over bands from churches all over the U.S. to get into the marketplace and let people get a taste of this new kind of church in their country. To use this activity as a catalyst to introduce the church to those who think church is boring and irrelevant. So do you go to a church with a rock'in band? ... Pick a town or village and come join us!! (Especially if you can understand anything on the "Fete de la Musique" webisite... it's only in French :-)
