Created: 21st Jun 2019
Live music across the UK on #MakeMusicDay 21st June 2019
The 21st June is Make Music Day. Each year since 1982 the summer solstice has brought music makers and music lovers together for free in public spaces to celebrate the energising, humanising power of music. What sets Make Music Day apart from other events is that anyone who wants to make music can take part.
Now a global, grassroots festival involving more than 120 countries, it is the UK’s biggest single-day music event with over 1,000 performances and an audience of more than 300,000 people with flagship events in Millennium Square, Bristol, the Glanfa stage, Cardiff, Waverley Mall, Edinburgh, and The Scoop, London.
As one of the world’s leading lights for producing music of all styles and flavours, UK-based musicians of all ages and abilities have organised a host of gigs, performances and musical celebrations on the 21st June throughout the UK so, there are, of course, plenty of opportunities for you to enjoy a song and dance.
Bristol Airport, Millennium Square and Cabot Circus are among the venues taking part, as Bristol will come alive with music for the annual Make Music Day.
Taking place in a variety of spaces, both indoors and out in the open, a large selection of recitals, shows and gigs will take place across the city, ranging from open mic sessions to samba band marches.
Locations taking part include Bristol Airport, Cabot Circus, Millennium Square, SS Great Britain, St Mary Redcliffe and more.
Tom McEwen, Bristol Airport said: “We were delighted to host performers in the terminal in celebration of Make Music Day. Live music in the terminal always provides a great welcome to both passengers and staff and what better way to start a visit to the Airport.”
