Music has been with us for thousands of years, triggering the release of three powerful chemicals: dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin. And these hormones give us a rush of pleasure, promote reward and motivation, and help us feel connected to others.

So how about celebrating the feast of music at the Fête de la Musique on 21 June 2024?

June 21 was chosen because it most often coincides with the summer solstice (the longest day of the year or the shortest night for those who party until dawn). On this day, people take to the streets and play outdoors in their neighbourhoods or in public spaces and parks.

The Night of Music aims to bring together all types of music without a hierarchy of genre. In the streets of Bratislava you can hear pop, folk, country, rock, alternative rock, funk, jazz, blues, electronic music, experimental music, world music, classical music, gospel, fusion, indie, latino, grunge. BKIS is preparing this unique street event for the second time for Bratislava citizens.

The street music happening will take place on 5 main stages – on the Main Square, Hviezdoslav Square, on the White 6, in the Klariska Concert Hall and on Klariska Street.

Musical performances by artists mainly from Slovakia, but also from South and Central America, will also be performed in various unconventional and unexpected venues in several districts throughout Bratislava.

The official start time is at 17:00 with a continuation after 22:00 in selected clubs.

The story of the Night of Music Festival (Fête de la Musique) began over 30 years ago in France. In 1982, the local Ministry of Culture carried out a survey. It revealed that five million people in the country and at the same time almost one in two young people knew how to play a musical instrument. The then Minister therefore initiated an event to allow musicians to express their talents. He called on residents to play music outdoors in their neighbourhoods, parks or public spaces. The result exceeded all expectations. They played in streets, squares, yards, gardens, stations, plazas, and thousands of people roamed the streets in good spirits until late at night. The Fête de la Musique became a phenomenon that was adopted by several cities in Europe and gradually established itself in America, Africa and Australia. The Night of Music festival is held on the same date every year in more than 120 countries around the world.
