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.

Make Music Day is a free celebration of music making around the world on June 21st. 

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.

Completely different from 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.
Be a part of Make Music Day!
