What is Drone Day?
Drone Day is an annual global celebration of drone music, experimental sounds and community. Created by Marie Claire LeBlanc Flanagan and Weird Canada, Drone Day brings drone artists together for one day every year to make a noise that stretches around the world. This year’s Drone Day happens on Saturday the 29th of May.

What is a drone?
Musical drones are sustained sounds, notes, or tone clusters. Drones can be made electronically with computers or synthesisers and acoustically with instruments like the tanpura, hardanger fiddle, sho, hurdy-gurdy, bagpipes and the human voice.
