World Music Day Concert

French Music Festival livens up Faro Marina

The Alliance Française de l’Algarve is putting on a four-hour concert on June 21 to mark World Music Day.

As is tradition, the Alliance Française de l’Algarve will celebrate the Fête de la Musique – known in English as WorldMusic Day – on June 21. However, this year, the association has decided to host a more significant event. In 2023, “we wanted to go further and offer a beautiful and big Music Festival, like in France”, says the Alliance Française de l’Algarve.

Starting at 19:00 on the Palco da Doca de Faro (Faro Marina Stage), the concert will feature more than four hours of live music, during which French, Portuguese and international groups will perform various musical genres, including pop rock, classical folk, and blues.

The association’s objective is to include Portugal and, more precisely, Faro on the list of 110 countries and 340 cities that celebrate the Fête de la Musique.

The event, which is free of admission, is organised by the Alliance Française de l’Algarve with the support of the Municipality of Faro, the French Embassy and the Recreational and Cultural Association of Musicians.

The Alliance Française de l’Algarve is a non-profit association based in Faro since 1946. The association actively participates in disseminating and promoting French-speaking culture and French language training in the Algarve.
