Am 21. November 2006 rief Bill Drummond (The KLF) den No Music Day aus.

Einen Tag lang soll jeder auf Musik verzichten, um sich der Grundbeschallung zu entsagen und der Bedeutung von Songs und Tönen wieder bewusst zu werden. Laut Drummond ist No Music Day an aspiration, an idea, an impossible dream, a nightmare.

Das offizielle Manifest liest sich so:

on no music day:
no hymns will be sung
no records will be played on the radio
ipods will be left at home
rock bands will not rock
conductors will not take the podium
decks will not spin
the needle will not drop
the piano lid will not be lifted
films will have no soundtrack
jingles will not jangle
milkmen will not whistle
choirboys will shut their mouth
recording studios will not roll
MCs will not pass the mike
brass band pratice will be postponed
the strings will not serenade
plectrums will not pluck
record shops will be closed all day
and you will not take part in any sort of music making or listening whatsoever
no music day exists for various reasons, you may have one


  • Bill Drummond wählte den 21. November, because the 22nd of November is Saint Cecilia's day. Saint Cecilia is the patron saint of music. In many countries the 22nd of November was the day chosen to give thanks for and to celebrate the existence of music.
