June 13, 2024 -- Santa Monica will join more than 1,000 cities worldwide on the summer solstice this month to celebrate music-making at three local parks.

The free outdoor concerts are part of Make Music Los Angeles, which celebrates Make Music Day each year on June 21.

"Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part," according to the event's website.

"Every kind of musician -- young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion -- pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and strangers."

Launched in 1982 in France as the Fete de la Musique, the event will be held this year in more than 1200 cities in 120 countries.

"The city of Santa Monica has participated in Make Music Los Angeles since its inception in 2012 and provides support to neighborhood associations through its Art of Recovery program to present outdoor concerts," City officials wrote.

This year's events include:

Concert in Beach Park 1 presented by Ocean Park Association. The concert, which takes place from 2 to 6 p.m., features four bands.

Concert in Colorado Center Park presented by Santa Monica Mid City Neighbors, from 4 to 8 p.m. The concert features Mac Nix, Kyle Spleiss, Tom Nolan and the Santa Monica Youth Rock Band.

Concert in Palisades Park presented by North of Montana Association. The concert from 5 to 8 p.m. Performing are Captain Dan for Kids, Tutu School Dancers, SaMoHi String Quartet, Natalie Jacob Jazz Ensemble and The Red Coyote Band, winner of the 2024 Topanga Banjo & Fiddle Contest.

"In addition, Make Music Los Angeles invites everyone to pick up an instrument on June 21 and share in the joy of making music through online music lessons, national projects and a global livestream of events worldwide," City officials said.
