About Youth Beatz

A little bit about us.

Scotland's Biggest and Best Free Youth Music Festival

Youth Beatz Festival has been held annually since 2009, and is primarily aimed at 12-25 year olds, with the aim of providing youth services information, activity based entertainment and a large scale outdoor music event in Dumfries and Galloway. The aim of Youth Beatz is to provide young people aged 12-25 with an event they can attend with their peers in a safe environment and to gain information on a range of youth services available to them. To develop new skills, encourage and build confidence/self-esteem, foster community spirit and civic pride among young people participating in the event.
