World­wide Har­monies

Where Berlin - - ENTERTAINMENT -

What be­gan more than a quar­ter cen­tury ago in France has spread to all cor­ners of the globe, with more than 120 coun­tries now cel­e­brat­ing Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day. The mu­si­cal cel­e­bra­tion, which co­in­cides with the sum­mer equinox, sees cities around the world of­fer­ing free acous­tic con­certs in out­door spa­ces. The ma­jor­ity of the ac­tion takes place from 4–10pm, and although mu­si­cians are tech­ni­cally re­quired to ob­tain per­mits, this is af­ter all Berlin, so don’t be sur­prised should you come across troubadours per­form­ing at all hours of the day, in all cor­ners of the city. Mu­si­cal hubs this year are ex­pected to be on Un­ter den Lin­den, around Rosa-Lux­em­burg-Platz, at the stage at Mauer­park, in Span­dau’s Old Town, and along many main stretches in Friedrichshain. 21 June. www.fet­ede­la­musique.de
