We are counting down to this year’s Make Music Chattanooga on Wednesday, June 21st!
Make Music Day, or Fêta De La Musique, is a worldwide celebration of music, where musicians – of all levels at any age – will fill the city’s streets, parks, rooftops, etc., playing live music on June 21st (the Summer Solstice). This event was started in France in 1982 and has grown to include over 700 cities in 120 different countries. All cities are given the freedom to celebrate Make Music Day in whatever way best represents their city’s talent, people, and musical culture.
All events are:
Free (no tickets, no musicians or audience members are charged)
Participatory (open to any musicians at any level who wish to participate)
Featuring live music performances
For all ages and genres (no restrictions on kinds of music)
At multiple venues (not just one concert in one location)
In public spaces (that are accessible and welcoming to everyone)
Performers: create your profile by submitting a photo, description of your act, and any relevant website/social media links. Check out the available venues and bid on one that will fit your needs. The venue will confirm your request, and you’re good to go.
Venues: create a profile by submitting your location information and a description of the space. Peruse the musician profiles to request a performance, or welcome musicians to bid on your space independently. Confirm the connection and make sure your space is ready to go on June 21st!
