#MakeMusicDay is a free celebration of music around the world and the Isle of Man is now a part of the action! So why not create your own celebration on June 21st?
Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 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 — pour onto the streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbours, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
So far, Make Music Day (or Laa Jannoo Kiaull) in the Isle of Man will include a day of music workshops, performances and talks at the Henry Bloom Noble Library in Douglas in conjunction with Culture Vannin, and the Isle of Man Wind Orchestra will hold a fun and interactive celebration at 6.30pm in Nobles Park Bandstand, with performances and opportunities for all ages to join in.
Use the logo and feel free to add your event, photos or videos to the Facebook page.
