Fête de la Musique 2022: Opening Concert

Musicboard cordially invites to the opening concert of Fête de la Musique 2022 at Gropiusstadt in this year’s partner district Neukölln. Besides performances by the Gropiuslerchen and the French star Irma, the concert evening will range from street music to contributions by the project LEC – Link Up Euro Connection, Selam Opera! of the Komische Oper Berlin and the Ukrainian exile orchestra Mriya. The evening will be opened by Dr. Klaus Lederer, Senator for Culture and Europe and the Ambassador of the Republic of France, Anne-Marie Descôtes.

After two years of pandemic, we are very happy that June 21 will be celebrated as we know and love it: with live music at over 100 music venues in all districts of the city and across all styles, genres and music cultures. And most importantly: live with an audience – enjoying music, coming together and sharing the moment. That’s what the World Music Day is all about, and that’s what we’re looking forward to.

But that’s not all: launched in Paris in 1982 by Jack Lang as former Minister of Culture, the Fête de la Musique in 2022 also marks its 40th jubilee. On June 20 starting at 5:00 p.m. (general admission and start of the street music performances) all this will be celebrated with a diverse programme at Lipschitzplatz as well as Gropiusstadt Community Center, Bat-Yam-Platz 1, 12353 Berlin.

Admission to the opening concert is free.

Both Lipschitzplatz and Gropiusstadt Community Center are accesible to wheelchair users.
