Facts About Music Festivals
It is not uncommon to find competitions for music, especially when it is performed by professional performers. In the 18th century, amateur music competitions began in London, where George Frideric Handel held his first festival. Handel’s festival continued continuously until the 1930s, when it moved to the Crystal Palace, which burned in 1936. The Birmingham Festival started as a Handel festival but soon expanded to include other composers. In the early to mid-1700s, various other music festivals emerged in Britain, including the Birmingham Festival.
