Make Music Philly Day to create citywide jam session

Head to free shows in all corners of the city

Events Music
Milkboy Philly G. Miller/Visit Philadelphia™

MilkBoy, located in Center City at 11th and Chestnut streets, is a restaurant, bar, café and live-music venue.

Anyone with any kind of interest in music is invited to celebrate Make Music Philly Day on June 21. Bystanders enjoy a range of free shows; musicians, of any age or ability, get to perform for the city. It's a win-win for the Philly music scene. 

Fifty musicians have already signed-on to play at venues citywide, but those who want to participate still have time to sign-up.

Unsure where to begin with so many performances packed into one day? Here's a quick guide to artists who are sure to impress. Keep in mind, though, that adventuring to new spots in the city and listening to new music is what Make Music Philly Day is really all about, so exploring is also a must.

• Indie folk duo Owl and Wolf (not to be confused with The Dove and the Wolf) will perform at the Italian Market at 3 p.m.

• Josh Miller, singer and songwriter from the Philly suburbs, will perform at the Milkboy on Chestnut Street at 4 p.m.

• Philly native JaE will perform a blend of rock, funk and R&B at 1300 N. Front St. from 7:30-8:00 p.m.

• West Philadelphia Orchestra will parade around Center City, playing from 8:30-9 p.m., to end the day.
