Make Music Day is an annual grassroots festival with a huge range of musical performances taking place across the world. Since its 1980 inception in France as Fête de la Musique it has grown to a music celebration across 125 countries.
Anyone can take part with inclusivity, community and easy access experiences being the core vision of this event. Whether you’re a seasoned musician, an enthusiastic novice, or someone who simply enjoys dabbling with a tune, take up this open invitation to make and share music on this special day.
Traditionally the event is about bringing music into public spaces for the community to enjoy, but the challenges of 2020 caused the organisers to turn the 2020 Make Music Day into a digital event.
The 2020 festival held live streaming and music lessons, singing from the sofa and opportunities to play the official song ‘Bring me Sunshine’ with others. Visit www.makemusicday.co.uk to access toolkits and advice for 2021 and see who streamed what in 2020.
I had a fantastic day, celebrating all kinds of music made by all kinds of people.
What an inspiring event! We’ve changed our plans for the day to be a part of this. A lovely reminder that music is all around.
I think it’s a really special way of connecting the community, bringing people together and getting them to try something new.
