Make Music Day first came to the UK in 2012 and the number of gigs taking place has been growing year on year. 2017 was the first UK-wide coordinated event with support and funding from national organisations resulting in 147 performances. In 2020, there were 1,739 performances live and online and we’re still growing!
We know there are millions of creative individuals and communities out there, so how will you participate on Make Music Day? Whether that be performing, organising a gig, convincing a venue to take their music outside or lending your time, equipment and support, get involved in the world’s largest grassroots music movement – it’s simply the best way to celebrate the longest day of the year!
