Make Music Day on Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road will bring together more than a dozen South Florida acts — from Hollywood-based Americana sage Jim Wurster to Pompano Beach psych-rock trio Peyote Coyote — for free performances on Wednesday, June 21, as part of international celebrations of World Music Day.
Running from 5 to 10:30 p.m., the event will fill the popular promenade with busker musicians between two stages at the Euclid Oval and at 1111 Lincoln Road that will be home to performances lasting roughly 30 minutes throughout the evening.
Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, Make Music Day is an invitation to artists of all ages, skill levels and musical styles to share their talent with the public and one another. It is held on the same day in more than 750 cities in 120 countries.
“As they say, music is a universal language. So our hope is that World Music Day will be a great way to bring together people from all backgrounds and walks of life to enjoy our destination,” Ivannia Van Arman, executive director of the Lincoln Road Business Improvement District, said in a promotional statement.
Performances on the Euclid Oval Stage include Mustard Service (5:35 p.m.), the State Of (6:10 p.m.), Fin! Fan! Foom! (6:45 p.m.), Seafoam Walls (8:10 p.m.), the Velocity Gospel (8:45 p.m.), Denudes (9:20 p.m.) and Peyote Coyote (9:55 p.m.). Music on the 1111 Stage will begin with a ukulele workshop at 5 p.m., followed by Jim Wurster (6 p.m.), Polarity 9 (6:45 p.m.), Edan Archer (7:35 p.m.), Alex Coldwell (8:20 p.m.), the Fortune Tellers (9:05 p.m.) and Uncle Scotchy (9:55 p.m.)
