Whether you’re young, old, professional or amateur; everyone can celebrate Make Music Day on June 21, the day that’s all about music. It’s a global happening and music lovers from all over the world organize concerts and special events – mostly free!

French roots

To tell the origin story of Make Music Day we’ll travel back to France in 1982. The longest day of the year – June 21 – was dubbed ‘Fête de la musique.’ Festivities where conjured up to encourage musicians of all levels to go out and fill the night with music. Nowadays, the French cultural agenda can not be imaged without this folksonomic delight.       

International appeal

Over the years the festival has spread to France’s neighboring countries and across the atlantic, to all corners of the world. It’s celebrated in more than 800 cities divided over 120 different countries, like China, Nigeria, the United Kingdom and Brazil. Australia is one of this year’s newcomers.
