Make Music Day Australia [national]

June 21

Make Music Day has grown as a global celebration of music making across more that 1000 cities around the world. 

It all started 38 years ago in France. In 1982, Jack Lang and his staff at the Ministry of Culture dreamed up an idea for a new kind of musical holiday. They imagined a day where FREE music would be everywhere, all around the city: street corners, parks, rooftops, gardens, and store fronts.

Make Music Day Australia began in 2018 with the funding and resources of the Australian Music Association (AMA), via its partner the NAMM Foundation and the Make Music Alliance. We also welcome our significant local presenting partner APRA AMCOS and The Live Music Office. The event saw over 100 events in 80 locations register an event on the Make Music Day Australia website. These numbers doubled in 2019 and again in 2020 when online events became a feature and the program of events was truly national. We embark on Make Music Australia 2021 with the vision of going even bigger!

We are now working to progress the Make Music Day Australia program and build greater awareness of the initiative on a national level.
