Let’s get loud! Make Music Day is back!
Make Music Day takes place each year on 21 June and is a global celebration of music-making across more than 1000 cities. Music has the power to transport us, it uplifts us, and it heals and now, more than ever, we are aware of the power of music to connect and elevate people. It brings humour, community and solidarity.
In 2020, music in the time of COVID-19 has bought us global joy – from at home performances by musicians like Lady Gaga and Lizzo and Australia’s Isolaid Festival, to the epic online Couch Choir performance of Close to You.
What is Make Music Day in 2020?
Make Music Day is a free music festival held in cities around the world and in 2020 it’s going virtual, bringing music into your home. Musicians and music-lovers are encouraged to play, make, teach, learn or simply enjoy music in creative ways online. Participants can activate online spaces, creating virtual stages and livestreaming performances and workshops via social media.
It’s a day to celebrate NSW artists and musicians, and connect online with our communities.
Visit the Make Music Day Australia website for information on how to get involved online and register your livestream or pre-recorded performance. There is also a guide to online and virtual venues on the site. For more information, please contact Sarah Carradine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s all make some music on 21 June!
