This is music to our ears. Chattanooga is joining over 1,000 cities globally to host its annual Make Music Day, a city-wide festival celebrating our local artists, on Friday, June 21.

For the entire day, you can expect free pop-up shows around town “where every street corner, park, and space becomes a stage,” jam sessions, and workshops. With over 15 artists already scheduled to perform, we’re especially excited for:

  • Sam Steadman | Barrelhouse Ballroom, 12-2 p.m.
  • Rick Rushing | Creative Discovery Museum, 1-3:05 p.m.
  • Billy Anne Crews | Wanderlinger Brewing Co., 5:05-5:45 p.m.
  • DK Harrell | Nightfall at Miller Park and Plaza, 7 p.m.-12 a.m.

Now we’re looking to you — venue owners, musicians, educators, and anyone who loves making music — to join the lineup by registering by Saturday, June 15.
