The Monash Youth Music Festival

Welcome to 2024 MYMF!

The Monash Youth Music Festival is a significant annual music festival held on the lands of the Wurundjeri People in the leafy City of Monash, Victoria Australia. This Festival draws well over a thousand young musicians from all over Melbourne each August to compete in forty-nine disciplines including Ensemble and Choral competitions, solo competitions and non-competitive mini recitals. 

The Festival keeps growing each year with events now spreading over a three week period. Scroll down to see our Festival Events Diary below.

This year we are excited to introduce a Guzheng competition for the very first time, and we may indeed be the first eisteddfod in Australia to do so! Go to our Schedule page for more information!

Thank you to all who have entered this year's Festival. We have received over 880 section entries this year - an all time record!
