There is no better way to enjoy the first day of summer than to be a part of “Make Music Philly,” the local chapter of “National Music Day” on June 21st. The music festival began in 1982 as “Fêtes de la Musique” in France, and since then has expanded to more than 500 cities around the world.

The festival features a wonderful medley of free shows for the city to enjoy from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Performers of all ages, genres and backgrounds will showcase their talents at various venues throughout the city, including City Hall, National Constitution Center and Commerce Square.

“Make Music Philly” strives to unite the whole city for a cross-cultural musical event. Radio 88.5 WXPN, the lead coordinator of this festival, encourages musical artists from the Philly area to register to be a part of the events.

No matter our differences, we can harmoniously join together and celebrate the city’s diversity through music.
