World Wide Music Day, Fête de la Musique, started in Paris in 1982 to make music free and accessible to everyone. Today it is celebrated on June 21 in 460 cities around the world. Musicians without Borders invite musicians, bands, choirs and ensembles around the world to organize benefit concerts on June 21, 2015 to help raise funds and awareness for our work of healing and reconciliation through music.
"If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music." - Jimi Hendrix

Musicians without Borders promotes access to music as a basic human right and a powerful tool for social change, especially for people in war-torn communities.

Last year, in 15 countries and 21 cities, more than 250 musicians organized and performed in 26 events, paying tribute to the power of music and helping to raise support for the organization. Join them this year in their effort to bring music to children, young people and adults living in divided cities, refugee camps, poverty or exile because of war and conflict.
