Join us for a free engaging and interactive day of music-making.

Music for Youth, Bristol Beacon and Trinity College London have come together to launch a brand new inclusive music event for young people. We’re inviting you to watch the performances from talented young people, engage with inspiring talks, join a workshop and meet passionate organisations in the ‘marketplace’.

This festival is specifically to celebrate creativity and music making for young people of all abilities, welcoming young people from deaf, neurodivergent and disabled communities to join the fun.

Supported by Trinity’s Award and Certificates in Musical Development (ACMD) qualification, in association with the Sounds of Intent programme, and hosted at the transformed Bristol Beacon, the festival promises to empower and inspire everyone involved.
