Where can performances take place? You guessed it: everywhere!

(Well, almost everywhere!) Whether you’re a restaurant, a storefront sidewalk or just have a spacious front garden, any location can become a performance venue as long as it free and accessible to the public. As a DIY event, MMC hopes to foster neighborhood connections and transform unexpected spaces into awesome venues for live music.

To host some free, live music, register here as a Venue. With our matchmaking software, Artists can request to play in your space, or you can search the Artist listings to make your own match. Once a match is made, Make Music Chicago will help secure all necessary permits and promote your performance as part of our summer solstice music extravaganza.

All Venues must register using the software to be an official Make Music Chicago event.
