Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Day is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, square, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbours, and strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
Jacaranda Square @ Sydney Olympic Park comes alive from 9am to 7pm with a diverse mix of musical talent – professional acts from western Sydney’s thriving contemporary music scene playing soul, R’n’B and Rap, and ‘open mic’ punters looking for their 5 minutes of fame.
Cafes and restaurants here at the Park are also on board and will showcase musical talent throughout the day.
Commuters won’t miss out either – our Musical Express (in partnership with Sydney Trains) will treat patrons to great music from diverse cultures as they travel to and from the Park.
Morning Peak 7.30am to 9.30am
Afternoon Peak 3.30pm to 5.30pm
