We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live and make music, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging and we extend that respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with us today.

We celebrate music making, wherever you are, whoever you are, whatever music you play.

We celebrate Make Music Day, the international day of music making on 21st June each year. 

Make Music Day

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.

Unlike a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. It’s a DIY Music Festival!

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.
