Fête de la Musique

A citywide celebration is the only day of the year in which noise laws are openly ignored and the streets are filled with musicians and wannabes banging away on garbage cans or honking their car horns in an attempt to make music. Random, unorganized musical parties and concerts rock the city at the summer solstice while more organized concerts are held at place de la Bastille and place de la République and in La Villette and the Latin Quarter.
