Created by the organizers of Disquaire Day (Record Store Day), in association with the City of Paris, this new festival strives each year to not to be missed and give Paris an important voice in the international music scene. Paris Music will transform Paris into a European music capital and a giant creative space through concerts organized in several Parisian venues, but also in unlikely spaces that do not usually host these types of events. The Crypte Archéologique du parvis Notre-Dame and the Musée National Eugène Delacroix for example. Paris Music proposes all types of music, from pop to contemporary, from rap to classical, from jazz to electronic.
