AIYF began its life as a classical music festival in the 1960s in Switzerland and moved to Aberdeen in 1973. It originally featured orchestras and chamber musicians from all over Europe, gathered to perform and collaborate in the festival environment. Now, forty years later, the festival has grown and modernised and includes even more genres of the youth arts movement including dance, theatre, opera and world music. The festival is a truly international event, with participants travelling from all four corners of the globe to take part, AIYF is committed to supporting emerging talent from across Scotland and the rest of the UK.
