Make Music Day @ Sydney Olympic Park
June 21, 2019
Join us for a day at the Park celebrating the most universal of all art forms – music!
Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world on 21st June. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 800 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 — pours onto streets, parks, squares and porches to share their music with friends, neighbours, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
Jacaranda Square @ Sydney Olympic Park comes alive from 9am to 7pm with a diverse mix of musical talent – professional acts from western Sydney’s thriving contemporary music scene playing soul, R’n’B and Rap, and ‘open mic’ punters looking for their 5 minutes of fame.
Commuters won’t miss out either – our New Musical Express (in partnership with Sydney Trains) will treat patrons to great music from diverse cultures as they travel to and from the Park.
