About

Join the worldwide celebration of music! Performed by anyone. Free for everyone.

Make Music Platteville is an annual one-day, citywide, free day of music held on the summer solstice, June 21. This year marks Platteville’s ninth year in the international summer solstice music celebration. We join over 1000 communities around the world in kicking off summer by filling the city with music. Make Music Platteville will turn backyards, front porches, museums, and parks into a virtual stage, and offer a full spectrum of performers the opportunity to display their musical skills. Open to music makers of all ages, skill levels, and musical persuasions!

When: On the summer solstice, Friday, June 21, 2024. 10:00am-11:00pm

Support

Overview Donate

Make Music Platteville is a volunteer-organized event and thrives on the support of our community.

What does it cost and where does the money go?  The cost of bringing the concerts to our venues across Platteville in one day is roughly $1,200.

The work of a small army of volunteers is needed to pull this off on such a limited budget, but unavoidable costs remain, including: Make Music Alliance Membership, publicity and advertising that are critical to the success of the event, software development for the matchmaking system,  and many volunteers to handle the administrative aspects of the nonprofit organization.

Help cover these costs, and be part of bringing the musical merriment to the summer solstice!

Checks can be sent to:
