present the 9th annual

Fete de la Musique

Free Festival of Music

June 26th

9pm – 3am

At Happy, Latino’s, Beau Monde and Chow Cabaret

Tory Street


New Zealand

The Alliance Francaise is proud to present the 9th annual Fete de la Musique festival of music.

After the huge success of the festival in 2004, where an estimated 1000 people enjoyed the best of Wellington music, this year’s festival is again located at four inner city venues and features some of Wellington’s most inspired and inspiring musical groups.

Fete de la Musique is a free event sponsored by the Alliance Francaise (the French cultural exchange centre in New Zealand) and the French Embassy. It has been designed to emulate the massive Fete de la Musique festivals that are held in Paris, Berlin and across the world. These events attract crowds in the hundreds of thousands. The Wellington event makes the varied and exciting Wellington music scene accessible to the public for one massive night of festival atmosphere.

“We are really excited about this year’s Fete de la Musique,” says Alliance Francaise Director Jean Francois Fievet. “After 2004’s success in presenting such a huge and exciting festival, this year can only build on the last.”

Happy, Latino’s Tapas Bar, Beau Monde and the new venue, Chow Cabaret, are the event’s hosts. These are all located on Tory Street within a minute’s walk of each other. Ten groups will perform in these four venues from 9pm till close at 3am.
