ABOUT: MAKE MUSIC DAY
Launched in France in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day has become an international phenomenon,
celebrated by hundreds of millions of people in over 1,000 cities in 120 countries.
Make Music Day Seattle, the annual global celebration of music held on the summer solstice, returns to Seattle this year on June 21 with an exciting, creative and diverse lineup of both virtual and in-person music-making events that will immerse and enthrall participants while spotlighting music's power to connect, comfort, unite and uplift. Over 90 U.S. cities will take part in the live, free daylong celebration, encompassing over 5,000 concerts, performances, music lessons, jam sessions and other musical events nationwide. Safety protocols will be in place following local requirements, including mask-wearing, social distancing and limited capacities and group sizes.
Completely different from a traditional music festival, Make Music Day Seattle celebrates and promotes the natural music maker in all of us, regardless of age, ethnicity, background or skill level. Make Music Day Seattle is an open invitation for everyone to make, enjoy, perform, teach, learn and experience music on the longest day of the year. Due to the pandemic, last year's celebration was largely virtual, but many in-person events will return in 2021.
