Fete de Musique

I attended the Fete de Musique in Les Herbiers yesterday. Manon tells me that this happens once a year - the first day of summer. In a bunch of French towns, they have some streets closed of for this festival. Then there are musicians playing on different corners of streets. You can hear all kinds of music here - even some in english (I heard Vertigo and People are Strange).

It was very fun to see this event in person and get to listen to all the French musicians, especially the ones singing in english (because they had very thick accents). I am very glad I was able to attend le fete de musique!
