The UK's biggest single-day music event is coming to Norfolk on June 21 with over 40 free events open to the public.
Music events will be held in public areas, venues, schools and libraries which have been organised by Making Music to allow absolutely anyone to 'enjoy the thrills of live music'.
Taking place on the longest day of the year, Norfolk is one of the counties with the most planned including gigs, performances and musical celebrations of all types.
The concept originates from France's Fete de la Musique which began in 1982 and now involves two thirds of the population of France.
In 2018 over 550 free live performances were hosted in the UK bringing interesting and surprising musical experiences to over 100,000 people on the day and online.
