Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part.
In 1982, Franceís Ministry of Culture dreamed up an idea for a new kind of musical holiday. They imagined a day where free, live music would be everywhere: street corners and parks, rooftops and gardens, store fronts and mountaintops. Three decades later, the holiday has spread throughout the world and is now celebrated in more than 120 countries. In the U.S., the presenting sponsor is the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation.
