Make Music Day takes place across the globe on 21 June annually. Started in France in 1982 as Fête de la Musique, this celebration of music now takes place in over 120 countries on the summer solstice. It is a DIY festival of music and anyone can perform or organise an event. Events take place in venues and public spaces – from town squares to libraries, bandstands to school halls, pubs to train stations – all are free to attend. On 21 June 2018 over 500 free performances took place across the UK, reaching audiences of 100,000 people live and online.
This year the Oldham Music Centre’s ‘Repercussions’ and ‘Funky Folk’ groups will be representing the young musicians of the borough in back to back performances at the Library. There’s no better way to get your weekend off to a great start!
