Make Music Day (or just “Make Music”) is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st, the summer solstice.
Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Thousands of amateur musicians play in public spaces, often for their first time. Professional musicians perform for new audiences, who come out from under their headphones to hear unfamiliar groups risk-free. And everyone is invited to sing along and enjoy the first day of summer.
Today, Make Music is observed on the same day in more than 1,000 cities around the world. It is the world’s largest annual music event.
