Fête de la Musique 2010

The Fete de la Musique in Lebanon, that is highly anticipated by music lovers who wait for the Music festival, such as myself, every 21st of June, and which usually presents great artists and bands, will happen again as usual this 21st of June.


It will take place in Beirut, Downtown area, Hamra and Gemmayze. Stay tuned and keep checking this post, as I will add the full program here, so we can all organize what to visit and where.

It says that there will be a special "Event" in the DOME (Egg), some of the artists that will be performing there are: Fareeq El Atrash, The Incompetents, Zeid and the Wings, Ghazi Abdel Baki, Youmna Saba...

Updated: Here's the program on facebook.

  1. I remember when they first started doing this in Lebanon, what was beautiful about it was the separation of music genres, if you wanted Jazz go to X, if you wanted Rock go to Y. Life was beautiful back then, I don't know/understand why it seems so unorganized these days.

    I wish them the best of luck for this year.

    Keep the music alive!

  2. I know what you mean, although I recall last year, on the Roman Baths was all Local Lebanese rock/alternative bands, such as Mashrou' Leila and The New Government.

    But you're right, it was more evident and divided by music genre before.
