Join the worldwide celebration of music on June 21!
Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.
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.
About Make Music Day:
Fifteen years ago, the Fête de la Musique crossed the Atlantic with the debut of Make Music New York.
Starting as a grassroots initiative by a team of volunteers, the event quickly became a critical and popular success. Today, over 5,000 New York musicians – amateurs and professionals, of all ages and musical persuasions – perform in more than 1,000 free, outdoor concerts each June 21st, earning praise for their “inspiring” (New York Times) and “thrilling” (New Yorker) performances.
In recent years, other cities across North America have launched their own Make Music celebrations. On June 21, 2021, 98 North American cities organized 3,334 free concerts at over 1,000 locations… all on a single day.
In 2014, to coordinate and expand their efforts, Make Music organizers from across North America founded the Make Music Alliance.

Like all of you, we are grappling with the huge impact the coronavirus is having around the world. As we plan for Make Music Day on June 21, we don’t know if public gatherings will be allowed or if we’ll still be social distancing.
Despite all this, we are still planning on recognizing Make Music Day on June 21. Unlike traditional music festivals, MMD is an open invitation for everyone to make music anywhere.
