The deadline to register groups for our 2018 series has now passed, and we're excited to see you all in February and March!

You can still submit a Recorded Entry before the 5th of March, which will give you access to feedback and more opportunities, but if you would like to be added to the waiting list for a festival, please sign up using the Book Now button

Taking place between January and April every year, the Music for Youth Regional Festival series welcomes 40,000 young musicians to take part in the world’s largest youth music festival in 50 locations nationwide.

This is a chance for them to perform and share their music-making, listen to performances from other local groups, meet other musicians, and gain valuable feedback. This is also a first chance to learn new skills and get advice on how your group can develop, from our team of Music for Youth Music Mentors who give feedback on all performances. By registering for the Regional Festival Series groups then have access to further Music for Youth events and opportunities across the year, such as National Festival

The Regional Festival Series is free to take part in and open to any type of group, style of music, and standard of playing. We only ask that you're a group of two or more musicians, aged 21 or under. 

If you're not able to travel to a Regional Festival you can still be involved by submitting a Recorded Entry. For more information head to the Recorded Entry page.

Registration is now closed, but head to our Events Map to see what festivals are happening near you!
