The week(end) of light and inclusion

Naja, just like last week, we are suggesting some nice activities to do if you are not such a big fan of football. This weekend is all about inclusion and Leipzig being an open city especially to refugees. On Sunday the second Brückenfest Willkommen in Leipzig will take place. I will actually be there, will be selling some yummy food. Come say hi! Plus, the solstice (as much as we get of daylight for the year) is coming up… so take the opportunity to prolong your fun!

► Fete de la musique

So in the 1980’s when Jack Lang was French minister of culture, he had the brilliant idea of inventing this music day. It is actually quite big in France and Belgium but it is celebrated all over the world, heavily promoted by the French Institute. Here is the program of the day, with concerts all over the place. Enjoy the longest day of the year!
