Brigitte Macron, rock and chic: leather jacket, ankle boots and slim jeans to launch the Fête de la musique

If the political context is very tense with the results of the last elections, Emmanuel Macron displayed a beautiful smile on the stage erected in the courtyard of the Elysée alongside his wife Brigitte and music stars Youssou N’dour and Charlie Winston, on the occasion of the Fête de la Musique on June 21, 2022. The President of the Republic notably paid tribute to the former Minister of Culture Jack Lang, present for the 40th anniversary of the Fête de la Musique, and briefly mentioned the “political context” following the loss of the absolute majority by his camp, during his first public appearance since the second round of the legislative elections. On this occasion, the first lady chose a casual and chic look with a midnight blue leather jacket, skinny jeans and ankle boots with stiletto heels. A perfect rock style for the beautiful anniversary of a party that has been copied in many countries!

“JI’m not going to make long speeches, I assure you“, he launched alongside Jack Lang and Senegalese performers Youssou N’dour and British Charlie Winston from the stage set up in the courtyard of the Elysée. “It turns out that this house was occupied today for other activities given the political context“, he added in reference to the consultations he has started with a series of political leaders, including Marine Le Pen, in the face of the risk of a political deadlock in Parliament.

The Head of State then immediately returned to the theme of the evening, thanking Jack Lang for having launched the Fête de la Musique in 1982, which is “has become a European and international holiday“.”It’s a tremendous success and it encourages a lot of modesty because there are few things in political life, basically, which still remain 40 years later and which are popular practices“, he said, also alongside his accomplice, the Minister of Culture Rima Abdul Malak.

The president also made a brief reference to the war in Ukraine before the performance of Ukrainian DJ Xenia, referring to “the solidarity that is ours“with regard to this country.”With Brigitte, we are very happy to have you at the Elysée (..) Long live the Fête de la Musique! Be happy !“, he concluded in front of the hundreds of spectators gathered in the main courtyard. The Elysée courtyard then vibrated all evening to the sounds of the mbalax of Youssou N’Dour, of the French electro duo Synapson and techno from DJ Xenia.Singer Charlie Winston got the ball rolling.

Some 2,000 tickets had been offered, in particular to young beneficiaries of the Culture pass, launched during the first five-year term. After the cancellation of the party in 2020 because of the Covid, the Elysée had received on June 21, 2021 two big names in electro and disco, Jean-Michel Jarre and Cerrone.
