Around the World

Spearheaded by the nonprofit organizations Music For All and Making Music, Make Music Day UK included over 500 free performances in 2018, including a brass band parade across London Bridge to celebrate New Orleans’s 300th anniversary, singing on top of Edinburgh’s Waverley shopping mall, performances all across Norfolk in libraries, hospitals and schools, and a steel band performance outside the British Library to commemorate the Windrush anniversary in partnership with the Gospel Music Industries Association.

In 2019, over 1,600 musical events are expected across the U.K., with flagship performances scheduled for England, Wales and Scotland. In London, Kinetika Bloco will parade the Low Line through the railway arches of London Bridge to Potters Fields with a series of music experiences in parks, the entrances to bars and other places and spaces along the way arriving at The Scoop amphitheater on the banks of the River Thames. Once there, music fans will also be treated to performances by Smiley and the Underclass, Hotsteppas, THe PETEBOX, Afla Sackey and Afrik Bawantu.
