Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world on the summer solstice.  Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries.​  In the United States alone, there are 82 cities participating.

Fête de la Musique's purpose is to promote music in two ways:
 

  • Amateur and professional musicians are encouraged to perform in the streets, under the slogan "Faites de la musique" ("Make music"), a homophone of Fête de la musique.

  • Many free concerts are organized, making all genres of music accessible to everyone.
