Interested in learning more about performing during Make Music Philly? Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to join the celebration! The event is an all-ages, all-inclusive celebration of music, so whether you’re in a band, a solo artist, a child, a senior, a saxophonist or a thereminist, there’s a spot for you to perform!
A Make Music Philly venue can be a anything and anywhere. Last year we hosted shows at breweries, retail stores, a recording studio, restaurants and churches. Any corner of the city can become a backdrop for live music, from sidewalks to your front stoop to a busy SEPTA stop… you name it!
