Our traditional festival format has been re-imagined, considering the substantial impact of the pandemic on young people and their music making over the last year.
Our Festival theme – REMIX 2021 – has been chosen to reflect this and we want to celebrate the many ways that teachers, music leaders and young people have adapted, innovated, reconfigured and rearranged how they make music together.
Sadly, due to government restrictions, we are no longer able to run the two day live element of the 2021 National Festival in Symphony Hall on 9 and 10 July. However, the festival will now take place virtually from Tuesday 6th – Saturday 10th July 2021, featuring our brand new video wall showcasing 180 new videos on the theme of REMIX 2021.
We will also be sharing an array of fantastic participatory digital content from partners and young people around the country each day of the festival week.
