The 69th edition of the European Music Festival for young People will take place from friday 29 april untill 3 may. It will be a instrumental and vocal edition.
Welcome to the EMJ!
The European Music Festival for Young People will take into account all current COVID-19 security measures for events when organising the 2021 festival.
This is the reason why next year, to avoid any health risks, the festival will be different from previous editions. We already know that big indoor events like our proclamation will be replaced by smaller or outdoor activities. We will ask our participants to bring masks to locations where this is required. All groups will be treated as bubbles for both meals and accommodation.
The jury performances will be organised in accordance with the COVD-19 regulations for the cultural sector. These practical COVID-19 measures may influence the end result of the performance. We will take this into account when evaluating the jury performances.
We will accept cancelations if the group is not able to participate due to COVID-19. We hope that these extra efforts will give you a perspective to a safe participation in 2021.
Making music and being united by culture is more important that giving the best performance of your life, especially in these trying times. We have to keep on stimulating youngsters in their musical ambitions and their discovering of new cultures and ways of fraternising.
At the end of October, when we will have a better view of the number of participants, we will communicate all practical COVID measure and keep you up to date on our website.
We are looking forward to your registration!
