Carnival celebrations of yesteryear 🥳...
Since 2000, the Fête de la Musique has been held in Luxembourg City on the Friday before 22 June.
This music festival, which gives amateur and professional musicians the chance to hold small free concerts in public spaces, treats residents and visitors to an eclectic mix of music performed in different languages while they take a stroll through the city streets.
Dates and locations

The venues will be announced in due course.
The full programme will be published in due course.
In accordance with the participation guide published by Fête de la Musique ASBL, the City of Luxembourg issues a call at the start of the year for restaurant and café owners, associations, clubs and/or musicians to submit proposals for free live music to be performed in public spaces (either in front of or, where appropriate, in shops/buildings).
Applications (using the relevant form) must reach the City of Luxembourg between 1 January and 1 March of the current year.
After the deadline, the City examines the projects with the applicants, and a programme and plan will then be drawn up based on availability and feasibility.
The proposals chosen by the City of Luxembourg are backed by a fixed contribution of €500 per group of musicians, plus €50 for each musician and the logistical support (small stage, sound system, etc.) for initiatives in public spaces.
Restaurant and café owners, associations, clubs or musicians can therefore only participate in the Fête de la Musique if they are selected after submitting an application in accordance with that stated above.
