Make Music Day in London Bridge

Location: London Bridge

June 21, 2018 - June 21, 2018

Join the worldwide celebration of music on June 21!

Make Music Day is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 800 cities in 120 countries.

Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.

London-based Kinetika Bloco will lead a carnival-style procession from the north side of the Thames starting at 6:00pm, across London Bridge, and then weaving through the More London Estate – before arriving for a final performance as part of our programming at The Scoop. Along the way they will be joined by other brass-lead ensembles from London and there will be yet more music from these bands on Potters Fields park at the end of the procession.

This is the London flagship event that is organised by the national coordinating group Make Music Day UK.

For the third year in a row there will be an evening concert centred around The Scoop (pictured above) – an amphitheatre dug into the side of City Hall on the south embankment of the Thames, which overlooks Tower Bridge, featuring a diverse lineup of live music featuring: THE GREAT MALARKEY, SAMBA SISTERS COLLECTIVE, a BRASS BAND JAM and CARMEN MON OXIDE

More acts TBC…
