Fête de la Musique 2013
IAM with special guest Rakim at Summerstage

New York, 3rd June, 2013: Fête de la Musique is a festival that began in
France in 1982, a free music festival to mark the summer solstice.
Introduced by the then-Minister of Culture, Jack Lang, the intention of the
festival was to promote music through free concerts and street performances.
Often known as ‘World Music Day’, the festival is now celebrated in more
than 460 cities in 110 countries worldwide.  In New York the day is called
‘Make Music New York’, and has been a celebration of free music in public
spaces across the city since 2009.

Two French groups will play in New York as part of the Fête de la Musique
celebrations on the 21st of June this year.

IAM with special guest Rakim will play the Summerstage in Central Park, 7:00
pm ­ 10:00 pm
