Music festival

Music festival

Classical, contemporary, experimental, French variety, jazz, rock, hip-hop, folk from here or elsewhere… Music is in the air on the 21st of June!

For the Music Festival, the City of Strasbourg invites you to celebrate the liveliness of music, to discover the diversity of genres and to let yourself be swept off your feet by the festive atmosphere.

The City puts local musicians on the spotlight. Amateurs or professionals will be able to express themselves on the public space to make the whole city dance.

The city acts as a gigantic open air stage where you can enjoy the dozens of stages scattered around the neighborhoods, in the bars, or on the streets, ready to celebrate the summer solstice with music.

Important: security measures will be enforced during this event. To know more, go at the bottom of the page.

Spontaneous participation

The spirit of the Music Festival also lies in the spontaneous participation of musicians of all ages, amateurs or professionals. This participation is a personal decision that doesn’t require any autorisation or the filing of a particular request, nor any technical installations, while respecting security measures. For the 21st of June to be an uneventful celebration, we must respect the tranquility of the neighborhoods, the municipal decrees and some basic safety measures.

Make sure that the place you choose is available

If the place you chose to perform is an open-air public place, contact the residents: bars, merchant associations, companies, ... They will be pleased to share their experiences and warn you about possible troubles.

Electrical installations

If you need an amplifier and need to find a power feed in a private house, cables should be put out of range of the public. Cables should be put on the ground without hindering pedestrian and bicycles movements, and should not cross the road at any case.

Power generators are strictly forbidden.


The sound level of your performances should be adapted to the place, the neighboring environment that you chose and the size of your audience so as to not disturb the neighbors. Sound systems, and other amplifiers, should be protected and set far enough from the audience to avoid earring damage. A perimeter of at least 3 meters around the sound systems should be enforced. Think about keeping a special electric fires (CO2) fire extinguisher near the sound system or any place that represents a risk of fire.

Traffic and emergency vehicles

Your equipment should not hinder public traffic, public transportation, residents’ vehicles, public car parks users or emergency vehicles in any case. In case of emergency, emergency vehicles need to be able to navigate. Make sure your installation can be removed fast if needed. Any equipment that can hinder vehicles or pedestrian traffic or may induce security problems may be subjected to police action.


In case of bad or dangerous weather (strong winds, storms, heavy rains,…), participants should be able to apply the necessary safety measures (safety advice, cancellation, evacuation, etc…).


The Music Festival will take place from 6 pm to 12.30 am. All participants must respect this timeframe.
