Hotels unveil Fête de la Musique celebrations
Friday 28 May 2010
Sofitel is set to go back to its roots next month, revealing a musical celebration in its hotels around the world in honor of the French "Fête de la Musique."
The brand says that its hotels on five continents will be participating in the festival, which takes place every year on the first day of summer in France, June 21.
Sofitel's Paris Le Faubourg hotel will lead the celebrations, with a piano concert and cocktail party for guests, featuring a selection of France's best champagnes and summer drinks.
In Morocco, local artist Hiba will be performing at the Darkum Bar at the Sofitel Marrakech Palais Imperial, after an afternoon violin concert around the pool.
At the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi in Vietnam, Grammy nominee Andromeda Turre will be entertaining guests, while the Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square in the US will host a French pop rock band for the evening, accompanied by a special selection of French wines and spirits, canapés and spicy chocolate tastings.
In Argentina, the hotels will weave together French and Latin culture, hosting a tango dancing show and an accordion and violin orchestra concert at its café, before serving French wine and cheese in the evening.
The Fête de la Musique was founded in France in 1982 and has since spread to cities around the world.
For travelers looking to experience the festival in its home town, Eurostar is offering travel deals to the event from the UK on a dedicated homepage on its site.
