The fifth BBC Music Day takes place on Thursday 26 September 2019 with events and broadcasts across the week.
Last year many of you took part in BBC Music Day's Platform to Perform. The centrepiece for this year’s activity is a celebration of music and wellbeing; the power of music to inspire, to bring us together and make a positive impact.
BBC Music Day celebrates the power of music to change lives with events across the UK and broadcasts on TV, Radio and digital. In 2018 BBC Music Day programmes reached over 13 million viewers on TV, 14 million on radio and trended on Twitter throughout the day. The initiative united 100 external partners who delivered over a thousand live music events, which featured in over 100 different BBC programmes. Take a look at the 2018 highlights, including Kylie, Nile Rodgers and Blossoms on the BBC Music Day website.
BBC Music Day Mash Up
On BBC Music Day at 40 locations across the BBC Local Radio regions, diverse music groups will be paired up to collaborate and perform an uplifting song or piece of music. The result will connect communities through music; introducing musicians, choirs, bands and orchestras who might not usually meet, to work together and collaborate in a unique melting pot of musical creativity – exploring how music can unite us and make us feel good.
The end result will be an unprecedented mash up of music styles, reflecting the rich music tapestry of music across the country!
The Music Day Mash Up will be covered by all BBC Local Radio stations and BBC Regional TV News; supported by BBC One programmes including BBC Breakfast and The One Show.
