Street music gets a whole new meaning at the HONK! music festival. More than 50 street bands from around the world will congregate in neighborhoods throughout Boston, performing diverse and dynamic numbers for the whole community.

The festival blurs the line between performers and audience, creating a united atmosphere that is inspiring, entertaining and above all, fun.
