If you play an instrument or
are in a dance group, we want you! Everyone can participate
World Music Day is a wonderful celebration of what you do as a musician. We are looking for a wide variety of musical genres: classical, opera, jazz, pop,
rock, latin, music from different countries and cultures, vocal ensembles,
danse groups, etc.
If you are an amateur, or professional, musician playing solo or in a group interested in performing on World Music Day, please submit an application to the Palo Alto World Music Day organizers. School students with musical talents are also encouraged to apply.

If your application is approved, we will follow-up with you, give you a specific time slot and assign you to a specific location downtown Palo Alto.
Please note that:
1) There is no access to electric power. We prefer
acoustic sound as opposed to amplified music in order to keep
the level of decibels reasonable, as you will have to share the sonic
space with other groups. However, if you must have
amplification, then please bring your own battery-operated
2) There is no stage. This is a street
3) You will need to be self sufficient and bring all that
you need for your performance (e.g. chairs) and will be
responsible for your own set-up and tear-down.
4) A key aspect of the spirit of World Music Day, aspect which distinguishes it from most other musical festivals, is that it is a
free event organized by volunteers with musicians who are not compensated and
a public that is not charged. You will, however, have an opportunity, if you wish, to ask for donations and sell your own CDs.
