PRESS RELEASE MAY 28, 2014

– Make Music Vancouver Returns on June 25th  – with environmental initiatives

– Free Live Music Celebration Featuring Over 150 Bands

MAKE THE STREETS YOUR DANCE FLOOR

VANCOUVER, May 28th – Make Music Vancouver is back for its fourth edition. On June 25th from 5 to 10pm, Gastown sidewalks will become musical stages and festive dance floors! Make Music Vancouver is a free, live music celebration that brings people together as summer begins.

VANCOUVER IS NOW PART OF THE MOVEMENT

Make Music Vancouver was inspired by the Fête de la Musique, an event launched in France in the early 80s that has since gone global, taking place in over 450 cities worldwide today.

 

YOU ARE INVITED TO JOIN US ON JUNE 25TH 2014!

Last year, over 25,000 people converged on the streets of Gastown, and this year we are expecting an even bigger public! We’d love for you to join the party!

 

MAKE IT YOURS THROUGH THE CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN!

Make Music Vancouver is a grassroots event that is entirely put on by volunteers. All the organizers and musicians are donating their time and skills in order to create a free music event for all. However, the event is not without cost; this is why every donation, big or small, shines a spotlight on local music in the summer streets!

Funds raised will help the festival return next year and contribute to its rich cultural legacy. Help MMV become a summer tradition and make a piece of the festival your own through a pledge on our crowdfunding campaign on FundRazr! FUNDRAZR.COM/MMV2014

 

MORE THAN 100 BANDS TAKE OVER THE STREET

Make Music Vancouver is about celebrating music in all its diversity. All musical genres are welcome, including rock, pop, classical, metal, folk, punk, jazz, reggae, R&B, First Nations and world music.

Soloist, members of bands, street performers and others, all musicians are welcome! Registrations are open from April 22nd to June 1st.
