MusicFest 2022

We are thrilled to announce that in 2022 we are returning to in-person teaching in our summer school and international music festival here in Aberystwyth.

Y Mewnol

MusicFest Aberystwyth launches Y Mewnol, a digital learning resource for you, your family, your school, or your music group to delve into music-making of our special festival and to create music yourself.

For one week everyone lives, breathes and dreams music

The spectacular coastline of Cardigan Bay in West Wales is the perfect backdrop for one of the finest music festivals in the UK – Musicfest Aberystwyth. Since 1986, we have hosted the exciting fusion of a world-class music festival and a summer school, attracting an international rostra of artists, teachers, students and audience alike.

Summer School

This year we will offer a selection of courses online and we hope that in 2022 we will be teaching in person

The Summer School is unique in offering  individual coaching, structured chamber music opportunities, orchestral experience and performance experience.


International Music Festival

The daily evening and lunchtime festival concerts, together with student foyer performances and impressive student showcase concerts at the end of the week are powerful reminders of the rejuvenating effect of listening to live music of such a high calibre.
