Make Music Portland

Free concerts every year on the summer solstice.

Host a show

Host a performance! Registration to be a venue host for our 2018 summer event is now open.


To connect performers with places to play, we use a matchmaking software provided by the Make Music Alliance. This easy-to-use platform enables venues to receive performance requests from musicians, then curate a lineup of shows for our July 21 event. If you’d like to register to host performances as part of this year’s event, please click here.

Prefer not to be on the schedule? No problem! We still encourage you to invite musicians to come and play. Make Music Portland includes performances in back yards, on porches, and in living rooms. If you’re curious to chat with us, have questions about the event, or would like to be connected with artists looking for places to play, please email us.
