4Biff Blue Amateur Festivals Everywhere

The British and International Federation of Festivals for Music, Dance and Speech work for amateur festivals everywhere. Most of our festivals are competitive and the performers receive verbal and written educational feedback from a professional adjudicator in each classification of music, dance or speech.

Please click here to download our latest information leaflet explaining our work, membership benefits and volunteering opportunities.


We have almost 300 amateur festivals affiliated to the Federation and a similar number of professional adjudicators (in all classes) and accompanists, listed in our Yearbook and on our website. Each year our festivals attract around 1 million performers, especially involving children and young people, reaching an audience of around 5 million worldwide.



For 2015 we have launched our new Festival Teachers Forum which is designed to bring festival organisers, professional Adjudicators & Accompanists and festival teachers together to explore and develop opportunities to extend the work of our festivals into local schools / educational establishments.
