Make Music Chicago is returning for its 7th year on Wednesday, June 21. Chicagoans of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate in HUNDREDS of free music events in the city and the suburbs from 6 am – 9 pm. Make Music Chicago is inspired by the Parisian tradition of Fête de la Musique, which over the past 30 years has taken hold in more than 750 cities around the world on the Summer Solstice.
Not only is it cool to join with our fellow Chicagoans to enjoy free music events, but you will be feeling the groove globally on June 21st. Since its inaugural year in 1982, Fête de la Musique has become an international phenomenon taking place every June 21. In the past, over 750 cities took part in 120 countries worldwide – including Germany, Italy, Egypt, Syria, Morocco, Australia, Vietnam, Congo, Cameroon, Fiji, Colombia, Chile, Nepal and Japan – easily making it the largest music event in the world.
