Queens joins Make Music New York, the largest music event spanning all throughout New York with over 1,000 bands playing for free.

And of course the borough is bringing its own flavor to the mix with an Indian, jazz and hip hop fusion show to a multi-lingual rock performance.

Check out the map below or look at the list to find a venue near you. The list is based on one composed by the Queens Economic Development Corporation. The map can be best viewed on a desktop as opposed to a mobile device.
