Upper West Music Fest

Writopia is proud to present the Upper West Side Teen Music Festival

The UWS Teen Music Festival is an opportunity for teenage musicians between the ages of 15 to 18 to showcase their best, original songs. The festival welcomes rock bands, rappers, and and solo acts alike to perform fifteen-minute sets of original material. Not part of Writopia? No worries, the UWS Teen Music Festival is open to all to perform.

Writopia supports performers to challenge their audience with provocative, thought provoking subject matter but does not support hate speech which we define as making statements by which a group is threatened, insulted or degraded due to race, skin color, national or ethnic origin, faith, sexual orientation, disability, body type, sex or gender.
