We’ve told you all about Make Music Music Day over the past weeks and it’s now only 5 days away. We wanted to remind you to REGISTER YOUR EVENT!
Held annually on 21 June, Make Music Day is part of an international movement launched in 1982 in France, it’s now held in more than a thousand places across 120 countries.
Make Music Day is like a DIY music festival that’s free and open to the public and we call on Australians to CREATE YOUR OWN STAGE on June 21
You can organise your own gig, or join the many organisations that will host events.

Here’s a few ideas for getting involved in Make Music Day on 21 June:
Create your own stage, wherever you are!
Grab your guitar/violin/bongos and head to the park. Contact your local council and ask if they have a spot you can play at (this could be a park, plaza, shopping centre etc). Get together with some friends for a jam session. Get your school/college/uni band to perform. Join a community choir – or start one! Join an existing community event.
Go live on your socials hashtags #makemusicday and #makemusicoz
Simply live stream your gig, jam session or even a music lesson from your phone on your socials.
Live From Home Challenge
Record a video of yourself performing one of your own songs, upload it to your social media, and tag three friends to challenge them to respond with their own performances. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #makemusicday and #makemusicoz
Songs from the Couch
Ask your housemate, friend or family member to film you performing your song from your couch, and post it on Make Music Day Australia website. If you submit pre-recorded content, it will be displayed in an online gallery on 21 June.
