Twitter Facebook Email Print Musicians take to the streets for Make Music New York Imagine a music festival that involves no travel, no badges, and no pretentious outfits. This day-long festival comes to you: while you pick up a morning coffee, go for a run in the park, or enjoy an outdoor beer with friends. Sounds pretty awesome, right? On Sunday, June 21, this becomes a reality when Make Music New York takes over Astoria. Celebrating its ninth year, Make Music New York is a unique, city-wide music festival that features 1,000+ free concerts held in public spaces throughout all five boroughs. From 10am until sundown, musicians of all ages and genres will take to the streets, parks, stoops, storefronts, and any other location you can imagine for a day of tunes. Event organizers are eager to build up Astoria’s participation in the festival, and are looking to rally together local small businesses and musicians to take part. Anyone and everyone is welcome to host acts: restaurants, bars, coffee shops, book stores, you name it. The more unexpected the location, the better! The only requirement is the performances should take place outside. But don’t wait: the deadline for both musicians and venues to apply is April 29. To learn more about how to get involved, check out MMNY’s Participate pages for performers and for venues. Participating locations in Astoria currently include: Sparrow Tavern POPBAR St. George’s Episcopal Church Olde Prague Tavern Astoria Coffee The Athens Triangle The Grow Room Astoria Heights Park Astoria Park Skatepark So c’mon Astoria, let’s represent! If you know a musician who would like to perform, or have the perfect spot for a outdoor jam session, please spread the word. See you in the streets!
