Night of Music

In the streets of Bratislava you can hear electric tango, jazz, reggae, indie, classical music, folk, blues and rock, but also street drummers, marching bands and DJs.

The one-day street event will also be the opening of the city’s oldest and largest summer festival – Bratislava Cultural Summer.

The story of the Night of Music festival (Fête de la Musique) began more than 30 years ago in France. In 1982, the local Ministry of Culture conducted a survey. He revealed that five million people in the country and at the same time almost every other young person mastered playing some musical instrument. Therefore, the minister at the time initiated an event that will allow male and female musicians to show their talent. He invited residents to play music outside in their neighborhoods, parks, or public spaces. The result exceeded all expectations. It was played in the streets, squares, courtyards, gardens, stations, squares, and thousands of people roamed the streets in a good atmosphere until late at night.

The Fête de la Musique became a phenomenon that was taken over by several cities in Europe and gradually established itself in America, Africa, and Australia. The Night of Music festival takes place every year on the same date in more than 120 countries around the world.

Since 2023, the festival is organizationally covered by the Bratislava Cultural and Information Center (BKIS) in cooperation with partners.
