Fête de la Musique 2013, Melville Music Day, postponed


Due to the serious condition of Former President Nelson Mandela, The Alliance Française, the Melville Resident Association and the French Institute of South Africa feel that it would be inappropriate to go forth with the Melville‐Fête de la Musique this Saturday 29th of June 2013. It is also felt that out of respect for Mr Mandela and his family, it would be ill‐suited to go ahead with what is essentially supposed to be a celebration.

The organisers have decided to postpone the Melville‐Fête de la Musique to Saturday 27th of July 2013, allowing all officials, persons, artists, sponsors involved to host a Fête de la Musique under the best conditions.

We trust you will understand our decision and that we will all stand by each other in this choice.
