Day of Music Fullerton is a citywide celebration of the world reknowned Fête de la Musique.
Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is an annual music festival taking place on June 21, the first day of summer in cities around the world. The concept of an all-day musical celebration on the days of the solstice, was originated by American musician Joel Cohen, who spent two seasons as a producer of musical radio programs for the French National Radio (France Musique). The idea later was adapted as a national celebration each June 21 in France and made official by the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang. The festival later became celebrated in 110 countries around the world.
Now in its third year, Day of Music Fullerton is a unique festival of 150+ FREE concerts in public spaces throughout the city of Fullerton, California, all on June 21st, during the Summer Solstice. DoMF takes place simultaneously with similar festivities, currently in more than 700 cities around the world – a global celebration of music-making.
Completely different from a typical music festival, DoMF is open to anyone who wants to take part. Musicians of all ages, creeds, and musical persuasions – from hip hop to opera, Latin jazz to punk rock – perform in parks, parking lots, streets, restaurants, bars, retail shops, houses of worship, and more. From high school bands to marquee names, DoMF is performed by anyone, enjoyed by everyone.
