World Music Day was founded in France in 1982. This festival is celebrated in over 700 cities across 120 countries on the 21st of June every year. Music takes over the city’s streets, with live bands, singers, amateur musicians, drummers, DJs and so on scattered throughout the city, expressing themselves through music and inviting the crowd to enjoy themselves.

Hyderabad has been a contributor towards this festival for several years. It has grown from being a small event at Alliance Francaise to becoming a big music festival with thousands of spectators all over the city. It brings together musicians from India and abroad reflecting the whole palette of musical styles and genres: Indian - modern and traditional, western classical, rock and fusion.

This year will be no different with the festival being celebrated at several venues across the city
