Make Music Madison

There are so many reasons that summer is a wonderful time in Madison, and one of them is Make Music Madison. Initiated in 2013 as Madison’s entry into the international summer solstice music celebration on June 21, the all-day, all-city music festival includes a full line up of venues, performances, and wonderful musicians all over the city.

Madison Public Library joins over 700 communities around the world in kicking off summer by filling the city with music. Make Music Madison turns the city into a stage, and offers a full spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills.
