Concerto Competition

The Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition has evolved from its earliest days as part of Hastings Music Festival to become an internationally-renowned competition for young concert pianists from around the world, attracting 170 applicants in 2019 across global auditions, 40 of which came to compete in Hastings. Their prize: the opportunity to perform with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra on our two-night final and to win a first prize of £15,000.

The inaugural Hastings International Piano Festival will take place in February/March 2020 as the Concerto Competition moves to every other year.

The Piano Concerto Competition will return in February/March 2021, with the website open for entries in Spring 2020.
