You’re invited to a free concert and dance party under the stars at SummerStage in Central Park on June 21!

FIAF, FranceRocks and SummerStage are delighted to bring Fête de la Musique to New York City for World Music Day, showcasing three diverse music groups that are popular in France today: legendary French rapper MC Solaar, electronic superstar Bon Entendeur, and electronic pop band Hyphen Hyphen.

Fête de la Musique, the music-for-all initiative, originated in France but is now celebrated every year in squares and streets around the world during the summer solstice. This concert is presented in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Fête de la Musique and as part of FranceRocks Summer Fest, the largest festival of Francophone music in the U.S.

MC Solaar, undoubtedly the most famous French rapper of all time, is known for his distinctive flow and clever, complex word play. Bon Entendeur, an electronic group with disco, funk, and hip-hop influences, got their start on Soundcloud and soon gained international recognition. Hyphen Hyphen, an electropop group formed at the Conservatory of Nice, is known for their latest record HH that cracked the top 10 on the French charts.
