We're looking for performers to open and close the Youth Music Awards. These acts must have taken part in a Youth Music project from January 2015 onwards.

Performers will need to be available to be at the Youth Music Awards in London on Wednesday 20 October 2021 or Sunday 26 September 2021 (see back-up plan), and comfortable with performing in front of an audience of up to 600 people.

For the opening and closing acts, we're looking for something special and unusual. This could be a whole-group performance, a one-off piece, or an exciting new collaboration.

Back-up plan: online event

This event was originally scheduled for Wednesday 21 October 2020 and has been rescheduled for the safety of our guests. Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are carefully monitoring the situation and government’s advice in regard to the restrictions taking place in the UK.

Depending on what the Government guidelines are during the time of the awards:

  • the total number of attendees may vary, or
  • the hosts and performers will film a pre-recorded show on Sunday 26 September that will be aired on Wednesday 20 October 2021. 

We will notify all roles of any changes to the live event in June 2021.

Apply now

Applications are open until 10am Friday 30 April 2021.
