Please join us in Harvard Square as we usher in the summer solstice on June 22nd as talented musicians from across the region celebrate the 12th Annual Make Music/ Fete de la Musique Festival.  From 2pm – 10pm, rock, pop, jazz, Americana, bluegrass, hip hop and more will fill the Historic streets of the Square as artists perform in pop-up ‘stages’ in 9 different locations.
Make Music Harvard Square is inspired by the ‘Fete de la Musique’, a street-music festival which was started 38 years ago in Paris.  The ‘Fete de la Musique’ is now celebrated, under many names, in more than 700 cities in 120 countries, from London to Beijing to Buenos Aires.  Harvard Square is proud to be a part of this worldwide celebration!
New this year!  Raise a glass to the start of summer at the Beat Brew Hall Beer Garden, conveniently located adjacent to the Brattle Plaza Stage!
Denise Jillson, executive director of the Harvard Square Business Association stated, “Make Music Harvard Square is a wonderful event that brings the community together to share an experience that is fun, family-friendly and free… as are all of our events.  The Fete is a great opportunity to enjoy some of your favorite genres of music while delighting in the warm and lingering sunlight.”
A complete schedule of talent follows.  Lineup subject to change.  New artists being added – please check back for updates.

We live in Cairo at the American Repertory Theater
Closes June 23rd
Loeb Drama Center
Run Time: Two hours and thirty minutes, including one fifteen-minute intermission
Recommended for ages 15+.

Inspired by the young Egyptians who took to the streets in 2011 to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak, this world premiere musical follows six revolutionary students armed with laptops and cameras, guitars and spray cans as they come of age in contemporary Cairo. Winner of the Richard Rodgers Award for Musical Theater, We Live in Cairo moves from the jubilation of Tahrir Square through the tumultuous years that followed. As escalating division and violence lead to a military crackdown, the revolutionaries of Tahrir must confront the question of how—or even whether—to keep their dreams of change alive.

2 Shows! 5:00PM and 8:00PM

Martin Barre (Jethro Tull Guitarist) Band at the Regattbar
Saturday, June  22nd 7:30PM
Student Discount Tickets - $40.00
Martin Barre has been the guitarist of Jethro Tull for 43 years, his sound and playing having been a major factor in their success. Album sales have exceeded 60 million units and they continue to be played worldwide, representing an important part of classic rock history.
Martin's guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition; he was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on 'Aqualung'. His playing on the album `Crest of a Knave' earned him a Grammy award in 1988.
As well as numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has worked with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Jo Bonamassa and Chris Thompson and has shared a stage with such legends as Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.
As Jethro Tull are taking a long break from touring, Martin has put together a band to play the "classic" music from the Tull catalogue. His band is a total commitment to give the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years. The band includes top musicians from a similar background.
