Youth Media team gets ready for Aberdeen International Youth Festival

The shmu Youth Media team are no strangers to Aberdeen International Youth Festival – in fact, this is their ninth year covering it!

This year is no different – the shmu Youth Media team are raring to go with the festival preparation in full swing. As well as meeting for the month ahead of AIYF to prepare and train for their coverage, they have also popped in past the pop up shop in the Bon Accord Centre to find out more about what to expect at AIYF 2017. Watch their interview with organisers Stewart Aitken and Jessie Gordon below!


During AIYF, you can keep track of the Youth Media’s coverage of the festival on the shmu youtube channel, twitter, facebook, and instagram where they are aiming to publish coverage of each event they attend. They will also be reviewing performances on their radio shows, broadcasting on Shmu FM on 99.8fm in the Aberdeen area or online every weekday 4-5pm or Saturdays 10am-1pm. You can also get involved by using the hashtags #aiyf2017 or #seetheworldinabdn.
