Special offer to support young artists

Buy two tickets for a Young Artist Platform concert and get two tickets free for another concert in the YAP series!

Swaledale Festival's Young Artist’s Platform showcases musicians early in their professional lives, many of whom go on to become major stars. Launched in 2008, it has helped more than two hundred young people build soaring careers.

To champion this year's young artists, we are offering Festival-goers the chance to buy two tickets to a YAP concert and get up to two additional tickets free for another concert in the YAP series.

YAP concerts included in the offer are listed below. Simply choose your event, buy two tickets from our website, then email emily@swalefest.org to specify the other YAP concert and number of additional tickets you would like (a maximum of two). They will be emailed to you within 1-2 working days.

This year's young artists include Welsh 'chamber-folk', a sonorous soprano and a Classic FM Rising Star. Let's celebrate young talent!
