JUNE 21: Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world always held on Summer Solstice – the longest day of the year, June 21st.
Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.
Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. All of it is free and participatory for everyone, all ages and genres, all live performances, at multiple venues and public spaces. Make Music Seattle is a stage that’s open and welcome to everyone.
Make Music Seattle, a local non-profit organization, was created in 2015 to celebrate music in Seattle, the City of Music.
In 2017, Make Music Seattle coordinated 14 public, all-ages, participatory music making events.
Sponsored by Verity Credit Union, who hosted 5 live music performances, and supported by Gigs4U.org, Downtown Seattle Association and the Seattle Parks Association, Make Music Seattle took over Westlake Park in downtown Seattle for a full day of inclusive music celebration featuring

Make Music Day is a grand collaboration of musicians, music professionals, business owners, community centers, event producers and more; everyone, yes, everyone is invited! New and innovative programming concepts are encouraged. Make Music Seattle is music on an extremely broad scale created by people with open minds and big hearts. The goal is to bring communities together through a very simple thing: Listening and creating art together. Music is for everyone, not just the perfect pitched elite.
When communities come together and share the experience of live performance, resentments and misunderstandings melt. They, after all, have created something together! Individuals of all ages and ethnicities will be musically engaged; doors will be opened to new experiences and ideas. When one person is inspired and educated, it enriches the culture of the whole community.
