Thank you to each and every artist that applied for this year’s Fête de la Musique round. We are excited to announce the selection of 22 musical acts to perform on the 18th of June at our biggest event yet.
“We are excited to have picked our largest group yet this year. The process was tough because there was such a diverse range of applications to choose from; some daring, some emotional, some loud, some soulful, but all extremely passionate. We were blown away by the dynamic and surprising entries that really pushed the envelope. Every year, the jury tries to select broadly across genres to create a melting pot of musical sounds. Luckily this year we were able to choose more acts, grow the festival and give more artists the opportunity to shine. It has been 40 years since the festival began in France, so it is a great occasion for a bigger celebration” says Sophie Boulé, Cultural Attaché and Deputy Director of IFAS.
Here is the list of successful applicants:
DJ Teedo Love
iPhupho L’Ka Biko
