You can soak up sun and sounds during the summer solstice thanks to Make Music Boston, a citywide sonic celebration that invites bands and artists to make some noise together. Inspired by France’s Fête de la Musique, the third annual fest is part of a worldwide movement that has more than 700 cities playing along. Last year, Boston’s iteration had nearly 200 artists—from brass bands to hip-hop artists to indie-rock outfits—taking up their instruments and taking to the streets and outdoor venues like the Lawn on D. This year, Make Music Boston has partnered with new nonprofit Kadence Arts to bring beats to more than 40 locations across town, so check the website for the full lineup and listen up on June 21.
Make Music Boston takes place at locations across Greater Boston on June 21. Free. makemusicboston.org.
