2017’s Make Music Day UK announced
The annual free celebration of music will take place throughout the country on Wednesday 21 June and everyone is invited
Make Music Day UK is a day of free music held in public spaces on the summer solstice, 21 June 2017. It is part of an international summer solstice celebration, which started in France in 1982 and now takes place in more than 120 countries and 750 cities across the world. The event is organised in association with Making Music, Music for All and Classic FM, and is supported by Arts Council England, Musicians Union, Music Sales and NAMM Foundation.
Make Music Day UK aims to turn the country into a stage and offer a wide spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills and it is all free of charge. The organisers want Make Music Day to be filled with as many different sorts of events as possible in all sorts of spaces and places, so anyone can get involved regardless of age, ability, genre or instrument. The Make Music Day website can match performers with venues and vice versa.
Musicians, bands, music groups, venues and schools who would like to get involved can register now. Full details of the event, including participating venues and local appearances, will be listed at makemusicday.org/uk over the coming weeks.
