And to celebrate World Music Day 2021, we not only bring you a bunch of quotes about music, HD images and wallpapers but also throw light on the origin and celebrations behind this day!
The origins of this festival are quite new. When Maurice Fleuret became Director of Music and Dance at the Ministry of Culture in France, he began to dream of a way to unite people on the streets using the one common interest in the French public- Music. Subsequently, the Fête de la Musique first took place in Paris in 1982. Since then, the festival is celebrated all over the world in more than 1000 cities in 130 countries including in Australia, Peru, Brazil, Ecuador, Mexico, China, India, Germany, Italy, Greece, Russia, Canada, the United States, the UK, and Japan.

Fête de la Musique's purpose according to Wikipedia is to promote music in two ways: Amateur and professional musicians are encouraged to perform in the streets, under the slogan "Faites de la musique" ("Make music"), a homophone of Fête de la musique.
And many free concerts are organized, making all genres of music accessible to the public. Two of the caveats to being sanctioned by the official Fête de la Musique organization in Paris are that all concerts must be free to the public, and all performers donate their time free of charge. This is true of most participating cities as well.
