All Day, All Over, All Free!

On Saturday, June 21, Philadelphia will join more than 500 other cities worldwide that celebrate music on the first day of summer, the longest day of the year.

The plan is to double the events in our second year with at least 300 performance. Also, this year, Make Music Philly will culminate in a free concert to take place at Penn’s Landing on the Delaware River waterfront to close the event (artists to be announced).
