France was the first country to promote this, a single night of limitless music on the eve of the summer solstice, 21st June. Sound restrictions are lifted for the night and hundreds of amateur talents line the streets to perform for the public in a truly bewitching musical dedication to the start of summer.

Professional concerts of an endless variety of musical genres are given throughout the night in halls, churches and theatres and attendance is largely free, so there is a dizzyingly full night’s entertainment to be had simply from wandering the wide streets in the dark with the rest of the city, crepe in hand, amongst the blossom-packed trees.
