BBC Music Day: Friday 3 June 2016

After a first outing in 2015, BBC Music Day returns on Friday 3 June 2016 and is looking to link up or involve amateur music groups

BBC Music Day aims to connect communities and generations through a UK-wide celebration of music on TV, Radio, online and at live events. 

In June this year, the very first BBC Music Day featured over 20 live music events, including a 73-mile musical relay from dawn to dusk along Hadrian’s Wall, a special educational needs and disability youth concert with The British Paraorchestra in Bristol, and a record-breaking musical event in Cardiff.

BBC Music Day reached an audience of over 15 million on TV, Radio and online. This soft-launch delivered unique broadcast collaborations across the BBC and featured innovative musical collaborations that united generations and communities.

The BBC aim to make BBC Music Day 2016 even bigger and they would like you to get involved. The theme for 2016 is learning to play an instrument, from the most simple to the more complex — they would like to hear from you if you’re already planning an event on Friday June 3rd and would like to link up with BBC Music Day. The BBC would also like to hear from any music groups and organisations who’d like to join them by organising an event or activity especially for the day.
