2021 BU Global Music Festival

September 18, 2021

The BU Global Music Festival is back! Join us LIVE for an all-day outdoor festival on Saturday, September 18. Enjoy extraordinary international music, educational events and a global bazaar at Boston University – all free and open to the public. Be sure to join our mailing list for updates about the 2021 festival including artist line-up, safety protocols, and ticket reservations.

While the festival is outside and masks are not required, we do ask that everyone bring a mask. Available restrooms are inside BU buildings and masks are required by the university indoors. We also strongly encourage all visitors to campus to be vaccinated. Any participant with symptoms that could be related to COVID-19 should not engage in group activities and seek medical advice.
