Music For Youth

Music for Youth is a national youth arts charity working to provide young people aged 21 and under across the UK with free, life-changing performance and progression opportunities, regardless of background or musical style.

Our current year-long season of events consists of the following:

  • Regional Festivals
  • National Festival
  • Festival Fringe
  • New Music Stage
  • Music for Youth Proms
  • Frequencies
  • Exchange Scotland
  • Primary Proms
  • MFY Connects

We put on a range of different events both at Regional, local levels, and at a National UK-wide level.

Our year, or “season” starts with 50 Regional Festivals that take place in venues right across the UK between January and April.

New Music Stage is a celebration of new music of any style created by the best, most diverse and talented young musicians between the age of 12 and 21 across the UK.

MFY Connects celebrates the achievements of performers at our National Festival, partnering young musicians with key organisations from across the arts and music sector in order to share the wealth of knowledge and guidance that they have to offer.
