On June 21, 2017, Musicians without Borders will celebrate its fourth annual World Wide Music Day initiative. World Wide Music Day is inspired by the Fête de la Musique, which began in Paris in 1982 with the aim is to make music free and accessible to everyone. We promote access to music as a basic human right and a powerful tool for social change, especially for people in war-torn communities.
On June 21, we invite musicians, bands, choirs, ensembles to join us on this day by organizing benefit concerts in support of people living in divided cities, refugee camps, poverty or exile because of war and armed conflict. We invite music organizations and music festivals to join us in supporting the initiative through promoting it to wider audiences.
In exchange, we can offer increased visibility for participating musicians and organizations through our extensive global network, including over 25,000 Facebook followers and over 10,000 newsletter subscribers. Additionally, musicians who register their event by the 31st of March will receive our “benefit in a box” tool kit equipped with a comprehensive set of PR materials and bi-weekly tips on organizing a successful event.
