This year will be sixth year we will coordinate international Music Day in the UK and the big day will be on Wednesday 21 June 2017.
Music Day is a connected set of free public events which takes place each year on the 21st June, our midsummer. Each year there are events in over 120 countries and 700 cities around the world, not including France where there were too many events to count!
Typically this means that the music is brought out onto the streets, though venues are also encouraged to get in on the act!
2012 was the first year that the UK made a co-ordinated contribution towards Music Day and the number of events taking place has been growing year on year, regardless of what day of the week the date falls on.
We want everyone to think about how they can participate in a UK contribution to Music Day — whether that be performing, organising an event, convincing a venue to take their music outside or lending your time, equipment and support.
Of course you can also just turn up and join in the celebrations! To get this event taking hold in the UK we need people to spread the word. Please join our mailing list, follow us on social media, or send our press release out to your own networks, friends and colleagues. The UK can then truly embrace the amazing worldwide phenomenon known as Music Day – it's simply the best way to celebrate the longest day of the year!
