- Live music at almost 30 venues around the city
- Come and listen to others, or make your own music
June 21 is the longest day of the year and to celebrate the Summer Solstice Make Music Seattle encourages everyone to come out and make some music! Launched in 1982 as the Fête de la Musique in France, Make Music celebrations are now held in more than 700 cities in 103 countries. Held at dozens of venues around the city from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm, everyone has the opportunity to hear great live, local music in their neighborhood. A bit of musician yourself? Then sign up to play!
But really, the folks from Make Music Seattle say it best: “This one-day event has had such world-wide success, we are confident that Seattle’s toe in the water will enjoy the same acclaim. It has the capacity to unravel the polarized knot of Seattle’s music community; from the Seattle Symphony to Pike Place buskers, from Café Racer to the Paramount Theatre, from hip-hop to Bach and from aspiring musicians to seasoned professionals. Make Music Seattle is a never-been-built-before stage that’s open and welcome to everyone.”
