Crowds in front of the New Gen stage

Get ready for New Gen Festival

New Gen Festival, a celebration of music, dance and spoken word – by. and for, young people in the borough – will be returning for its third year in Walpole Park in Ealing.

The fun starts at midday on Wednesday 24 July, with artists taking to the stage and local dance groups leading workshops until 9:30pm. Tickets cost just £3 for young people (aged up to 25) and £5 for the over-25s. 

Not all about performances

Festival-goers will also have the opportunity to find out more about careers in the screen industry, including film, TV, and visual effects. You can also have a go at all sorts of creative activities yourself – from art and drumming to filming – or simply chill out in the Mind Zone.

The event is organised by Ealing Council, in partnership with a host of organisations including JE Delve, Elevate Arts, Southall Community Alliance, the University of West London and Rebels & Pilgrims.

Harpreet Nandha, founder of Rebels & Pilgrims, said: “I’m super excited to be working on the New Gen Festival. We’re going to be curating a 90-minute slot on one of the stages with local talent from in and around Southall.

“It’s important for young people to have the opportunity to perform on this kind of scale and take their creativeness to the next sort of level.”

Making memories

There are exciting opportunities for anyone aged 16 and over to volunteer at the festival, particularly if you are interested in the music or events industries. Join the festival crew and make memories of a lifetime. Sign up.
