What is the European Music Day? Nothing less than the country’s
biggest open air and entrance-free musical gathering! In 1982, on the
21st of June – the day of the summer solstice – with the
initiative of Jack Lang, the French Minister of Culture at that time,
Music Day or Make Music Day (from French translation Fête de la Musique
or Faites de la Musique) was celebrated for the first time with the aim
of “bringing out onto the streets all musicians”.
Music Day soon became an exportable concept and institution, and in
1985 it traveled beyond France with the same aim and parameters. Athens,
as the first cultural capital of Europe was the first city outside
France to celebrate Music Day.
Since June 2011 Kythera is one more city of the european, that have
joined the European Music Day event. The local executive team consists
of volunteers, people engaged to the music, the entertainment and the
media business. Heads of the team is Mrs Nastazia Beikof.
