What is it all about? Every year, around the world musicians gather in different ways to offer free concerts, flash mobs and workshops on June 21st as part of “Make Music Day” This all began in France with “Fête de la Musique” a free celebration of music that is open to anyone and everyone.
Last year Phi Theodoros, aka The Ukulele Dream Girl, in partnership with local artists Jessica Rae and Kat Coppock, ran the first ever official "Make Music Day" event in Adelaide. This year is different- COVID19 restrictions might be lifting but they still have a huge impact on the entertainment and arts sector. This combined with all the current unrest across our community means we need opportunities to connect and share stories more than ever.
This year the team is joined by Patrick Maher and all four are excited to be organising an online music festival with just 10 days between ideation and delivery. They've put the call out to artists across the state to go live and offer a short performance or workshop via social media.
All artists are donating their time but will invite the viewers to support them, if possible, by:
a) tipping them digitally,
b) purchasing their music/merchandise
c) by making a donation to a charity of their choice.
The main charity partner which will be promoted throughout the event is Ink Pot Arts Heart Lands Aboriginal Cultural Program based in Mt Barker.
