Féte de la Musique

No this is not our village Féte but the Elysee palace in Paris where President Nicolas Sarkozy (whose wife Carla Bruni is about to release her third album) took the novel step of opening up the Elysee palace to concerts.



The Fête de la Musique, is a free music festival taking place on June 21, which is also the summer solstice.

While it began in France it has since spread to hundreds of other countries. Nearly every town has a festival with local musicians putting on various acts.  Villefranche had a country music theme whereas St Cernin opted for contemporary/ rock music.  The music started up 10pm so it was too late for the kids but we were able to hear all the music as the sound drifted up the hill.  It all finished not long after 2am.

I was a bit disappointed that we were stuck looking after kids. I wonder if we could train the dogs to do that. "Benjie - protéger les enfants."
