Perform at Youth Fest

Submit an application to perform on the main stage of the festival. Spots will be offered firstly to musicians/bands who take part in Band-Aid – a free musician development day designed for local singers, songwriters, solo artists, bands and DJs between 12-22 years of age.

At Band-Aid on Saturday, September 10, 2016, young musicians join music industry mentors – such as Speed Control, Nimbus School of Recording & Media, Dani and Lizzy, and Bob D’Eith – for a jam-packed day of interactive workshops followed by a jam that goes into the night.

Registration is required to attend Band-Aid and participants have first priority to perform on the main stage at Surrey Youth Fest one week later. Please register soon to save your spot by calling 604-501-5566, press zero, and ask to register for course 4481518.
