This year the Music for Youth Regional Festivals will take place between February and April in almost 50 locations nationwide. The first stop on our annual season, we welcome 40,000 young musicians to take part in the 2020 Regional Festival Series by attending a Regional Festival to perform or submitting a recording.
Everyone’s invitedto take part in the UK’s largest youth music 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.
The Regional Festivals are a fantastic chance for young musicians to perform and share their music, listen to performances from other groups, meet other musicians and gain expert advice from professional musicians and music educators: our Music Mentors.
If you attend a Regional Festival or submit a recording as part of the Regional Festival Series, you will be invited to attend the 2020 National Festival – look out for more information soon.
