As NYC continues to rebound, Make Music In NY is elated to announce that Make Music New York — their free, annual, daylong, outdoor music celebrations — will take place (as always!) on June 21st, 2022!
We yell, hip hip hooray, as the event will take place during the summer solstice and the longest day of the year.
Make Music In NY can’t wait until the sun is directly above our heads and the music is ringing through the streets.
Their goal is to make the 16th annual edition of the festival their biggest ever: to give their local musician
Its the spotlight they deserve; to energize their public plazas, Open Streets, parks, and local businesses with concerts both groundbreaking and intimate; and to revel in sounds that truly represent NYC’s astonishing cultural diversity.
