It is free to attend - with all performers asked to carry out their acts without payment - and there will be concerts taking place is unusual locations such as castles, train stations and museums.

The Fête de la Musique was launched in 1982 by the French Government and takes place in more than one hundred countries internationally on the summer solstice.

The programme for the event will be published in June, but people can expect to see all sorts of genres of music, with What's on When revealing that established acts often get involved.
