Make Music


Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fete de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries. Austin is one of the many locations where this event is held. Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician – young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion – pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public. 

  • Free & participatory for everyone
  • All ages and genres
  • All live perfromances
  • At multiple public spaces
