Re-live the 2015 Festival

MFY's National Festival returned to Birmingham from 7 - 11 July 2015 celebrating the UK's most inspiring young musicians.

Birmingham came alive when thousands of musicians joined Music for Youth for one of the largest celebrations of youth music. The festival showcased the overwhelming talent that came from across the country to play on world-class stages, pop-up platforms across the city, and take part in inspiring workshops.
