Make Music
Auburn CA


Each year, over 1,000 cities around the world throw citywide music celebrations on June 21.

It all started 40 years ago in France.

In 1982, France’s Ministry of Culture dreamed up an idea for a new kind of musical holiday. They imagined a day where free, live music would be everywhere: street corners and parks, rooftops and gardens, store fronts and mountaintops.

And, unlike a typical music festival, anyone and everyone would be invited to join and play music, or host performances on summer solstice, June 21. This year Auburn joins the worldwide celebration!

2022 Listings: Tuesday, June 21st

How to Create a Performer Profile

You’ll be able to request a slot at a published location. If there aren’t very many available when you first sign up, check back. We all know Auburn is about deciding last minute. Venues may reach out to request you perform. You can approve or decline.

Auburn CA Admin will have final approval on pairings of venue and performer, just to ensure no one performance interferes with the audio of another one nearby.

The venue will reach out to you directly to communicate details. You can also email them and introduce yourself!

JUNE 14, 2022 is the last day to sign up.

Do the performers get paid?

Make Music Day is not a paying gig, but tips are allowed!

A sign with your VenMo or PayPal info can be displayed during the performance, and venues may provide tip jars. (Though you are always welcome to bring your OWN self-styled tip jar for cash tips).

I have a location to offer. Now what?

How to Create a Venue Profile

As performers begin to sign up, you can request to be matched with them and vice versa. Once you’re matched, the Auburn CA Admin reviews to make sure that all is well.

When the Admin approves the pairing, you (the venue) will communicate with your confirmed performers to give them whatever details you have. Email if you have any specific questions about this!

JUNE 14, 2022 is the last day to sign up.
