June 21 - Make Music Madison

When: Sunday, June 21, 2015
Where: Citywide, all over Madison
What: Make Music Madison is an annual one-day citywide, free, outdoor music festival to be held on the Summer Solstice, June 21. The goal is to generate a continuous wall of music as people walk around participating spaces. "Music" is whatever live sound an individual or group wishes to produce, and whatever the hosting space accepts. The festival will be inclusionary in terms of genres, ethnicities, styles of music, skill levels of musicians, and in the use of public and private spaces throughout our community. There are now over 700 communities around the world celebrating the Summer Solstice with a music festival.

What is Make Music Madison?
  • Performed  by anyone, enjoyed by everyone
  • A way for all Madisonians to celebrate the summer solstice, enjoying the longest day of the year, while sampling a buffet of music merriment.
  • A DIY city-wide celebration when almost any way to make music can and will happen. 
  • Make Music Madison is open to music makers of all ages, skill levels, and musical persuasions.
When and where will Make Music Madison take place?
  • Make Music Madison will take place on the summer solstice, Sunday, June 21
  • Some performances may start early or go late, or take advantage of natural commuter times, but public spaces throughout Madison - sidewalks, parks, and more - become impromptu musical stages, dance floors, and social meeting points. Last year we saw oodles of amateur musicians and every ilk of professional musician pop up all over Madison to perform for new audiences and neighbors alike, and we're sure this year will only be better!
