Rush Hour is shepherding the city of Chicago into a global phenomenon on June 21 with Make Music Chicago – the 24-hour musical holiday inspired by France’s Fête de la Musique celebrated in over 460 cities in 110 countries.

The largest “Make Music” celebration in the United States is in New York — Make Music New York is now in its 5th year of providing free live music of all genres to all 5 boroughs of New York City every year on June 21.

Make Music New York was so excited about Chicago joining the international celebration that they featured Make Music Chicago first in their web series on other festivals around the world. Click here to read their article about the inaugural year of Make Music Chicago.

RedEye Chicago, Chicago’s pop culture daily newspaper, featured Make Music Chicago as a part of their 2011 summer festival guide in conjunction with Metromix Chicago.
