(Updated at 2:30 p.m.) Live music will fill the air around Dupont Circle during D.C.’s own Fete de la Musique celebration.

The event, organized by Alliance Francaise and Dupont Festival, coincides with the worldwide holiday that first began in Paris in 1982.

Though the celebration started in France, musicians will perform several genres of music during the all-day performance.
