The free concert, from noon-2pm, is being hosted by City of Canterbury Bankstown in collaboration with the Cultural Arts Collective. The event will include artists such as:
Mayor Khal Asfour said the event would mark the second year Make Music Day was celebrated in Australia.
"Make Music Day has a long history dating back to its beginnings in France in 1982, and is now celebrated each year in more than 800 cities and 120 countries," he said.
"It was founded by French politician Jack Lang, who imagined a national day dedicated to free music in public places.
"Australia added the event to its calendar last year, with more than 100 Make Music Day events registered across 80 locations.
"This day brings our community members closer together and showcases the diverse variety of talents in our City."
Make Music Day is open to anyone who would like to take part, with musicians encouraged to organise their own music events for their schools and clubs on the day.
