Free Gastown Street Party - Make Music Vancouver

On Wednesday June 25 f rom 5pm to 10pm enjoy 'Make Music Vancouver' - an amazing event that transforms city streets into a huge outdoor stage for hundreds of local bands.  It's simple, anyone with a band can sign up to play.  Whether you are a seasoned professional or just an amateur that rocks out in the basement.   Bands are assigned a 45 minute time slot along the dozens of mini-stages set up along Water Street.  Last year 25,000 people turned out, turning Gastown into one great big party. 

Make Music Vancouver has it's roots in La Fete de la Musique, an event that started in France back in 1982.  The wonderful outpouring of local talent was so overwhelming that the event later spread to other large cities.  Today, it is celebrated in 450 different cities worldwide including Vancouver.

Got a band?  You can still sign up to take part in this festival.
