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 800 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, neighbours and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
It's a great way to share music, encourage others to participate in making music and remind people of the importance of music in everyone's lives.
If you want to see what happened in the UK last year, check out this video on YouTube. Lots of inspiration.
