Fete De La Musique (also known as World Music Day) is a global celebration of music, a tradition that originated in France. Through the years, it has become a likewise beloved tradition in the Philippines, through the efforts of Alliance Francaise institutions in the country collaborating with the music scenes in various localities in the Philippines. In addition to celebrating music, the festival is a testament to decades of strong diplomatic relations between the Philippines and France and has served as an avenue for cultural exchange between the two nations.

In its three decades in the country, Fete De La Musique has become a highly anticipated yearly event that musicians from all over the country aspire to be a part of in its various stages, a one-of-a-kind experience for both artists and audiences alike.
