2. L'ARSOUILLE: Recommended by Thomas


This bar is absolutely fantastic! With its 5 euro pints, it's the perfect spot to enjoy live music in an authentically Parisian atmosphere. It's my go-to choice during La Fête de la Musique and the vibes there are unmatched. The street is full of dj sets and everyone is friendly. Price: €5–€10 drinks Location: 22 rue des Trois Frères Thomas says: "I f you want to spend the best Fête de la Musique of your life, you have to come to the 18th arrondissement. There is no doubt!

3. AROUND THE SEINE QUAYS: Scott & Ana's Choice 75001/75003/75004/75008/75011

The Fête de la Musique on the Seine quays is really awesome because you can enjoy lots of outdoor concerts, switch from disco to reggae music, and meet plenty of new people, all while soaking up the great Parisian atmosphere. Price: FREE Location: Several Arrondisements Scott says: "I usually go to the area which is in the center of the Seine, so from Concorde to to île Saint Louis. I love spending that time outdoors with friends near the river. There are lots of live concerts around the area, you will definitely be entertained."



Celebrating the Fête de la Musique at the Chalet de l'Île de Vincennes is a unique experience! You can enjoy lots of outdoor concerts in a beautiful, natural, and green setting. The atmosphere is festive and friendly.
