Perform with MMP

Interested in playing at Make Music Portland 2020?

Registration for our 2020 event opens in March. All musical performers of any genre and any ability are welcome to play with us. Check back in March to register!

To build our schedule and connect performers with places to play, we use matchmaking software provided by the Make Music Alliance. It’s really simple. Come back in March once we’ve announced that registration is open to sign up, using the instructions below.

First, register on our matchmaking program. Then create either a performer or a venue profile, depending on whether you want to make music or host it. Then you can search for open performance spots or the perfect artists to make music at your venue.

Don’t want to be on the schedule? No problem! You can grab your preferred instrument and hit the streets. The city of Portland has graciously opened up sound permitting around the city from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on June 21. We ask that you be respectful of other artists and performers, but feel free to find an appropriate public spot anywhere in the city and make music.

Or, get your friends together to host a concert in your own backyard or living room. Just remember, performances associated with Make Music Portland must be free to attend and participate in, per our mission.

Other ways to participate include join us for one of our mass appeal events. You can find more information on those mass appeal events on our Facebook page or check the 2020 schedule in the spring, once we’ve finalized performances.
