Make Music Vancouver Gastown 2012

In just a few days, Gastown will host one of the largest outdoor urban musical festivals in the city. On June 21st, 2012 the streets of Gastown will come alive once more for the return of Make Music Vancouver. Last year’s inaugural event is back on June 21st from 5 to 10pm, where the cobblestone streets and heritage storefronts are transformed into sidewalk musical stages and festive dance floors!

This entirely free live music event will showcase some of Vancouver’s most talented musicians, and everyone is invited to enjoy the performances of over 150 amateur and professional artists as they take the sidewalk stages to kick off the start of summer.

Make Music Vancouver is a grassroots event made entirely possible by volunteers. All the organizers and musicians are donating their time and skills in order to create a free music event for all, and you’re invited you to be part of the experience and join in the celebration. Past 10pm, the party continues inside many of Gastown’s pubs, restaurants and eateries. So why not enter to win a $50 gift certificate to Chill Winston to spend while you attend!
