Festival Introduction from Artistic Director, David Campbell
Your 2021 Festival Highlights
If you missed any of our digital events or opportunities, look no further. You can now enjoy a little of the MusicFest 2021 experience right from the comfort of your own home.
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.
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.
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.

Through their generous sponsorship and donations, our charity Friends of MusicFest Aberystwyth supports promising young musicians who may not otherwise be able to afford to attend MusicFest, enabling them to benefit from outstanding professional tuition.
