Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.

Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — can organise their own gig, or join the many organisations that will host events, to share their music with friends, neighbours, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

Be a part of Make Music Day!

In partnership with the NAMM Foundation, the Australian Music Association has been laying the foundation to launch Make Music Day in Australia on June 21, 2018. Much preparation work has been completed, including NAMM’s representative, Aaron Friedman coming to Australia to meet with the industry and many government and community music organisations.

The Make Music Australia website is now launched and seeks ideas from the community and businesses to create Make Music Day events. The Make Music Day toolkit is also available online and includes ideas and guidance on creating Make Music Day events.

Possibilities exist for both retail and wholesale members to be involved in Make Music Day and lead a charge to creating more active music makers. Make Music Australia will see Australians creating their own music performance events.
To celebrate Make Music Day 2018 the AMA will coordinate the development of a program of events, run the social media and help people and businesses get involved and then promote it.

Go to the new site and register your interest now!

Music Stores can check out the suggestions by downloading the Make Music Day Tool Kit or call the AMA Office on 03 9254 1000 and they’ll discuss how AMA members can be involved.

More details can be had at the AMA’s Make Music Day Event Page
