Fees: One of the founding principles of The Next Festival is that young musicians need a place to focus on their art, free from financial stress. From the beginning we have been committed to making sure that all students who are accepted can attend, regardless of financial circumstance.
To that end, we have an unorthodox approach: each participant proposes a fee that is comfortable for them and their financial situation – a “pay what you can” model. We then do our best to make up the difference through the generosity of our donors. There is no set “fee,” and each musician pays an amount that is comfortable for them.
We are very proud to have met 100% of student need for the 2013 season, our very first, and we’re on track to do the same for 2014!
Fees including tuition, housing and meals.
