Music, culture and the arts are a force to fight extreme thought, said former French Minister for Culture and founder of the Fete de la Musique Jack Lang as he visited Lebanon for the annual festival's 16th edition.This year will see the festival host events all across Lebanon for the first time. However, on a more personal level Lang told The Daily Star that he is also eager to see how Fete de la Musique had evolved in Lebanon over the last 16 years. Lang said he also felt that music was particularly suited for cultural exchange between nations. But music was not the only facet of Lebanese culture that brought Lang to Lebanon.
