Dumfries and Galloway Council said it was “delighted” with how the event had gone.

“As the UK’s largest free youth music festival, Youth Beatz has highlighted what our region has to offer,” a spokesperson said.

“This would not be possible without the help and valuable inputs of all the dedicated staff, events team and volunteers both youth and adult, and we are incredibly appreciative of all of their fantastic efforts.

“Youth Beatz is more than a music festival, it allows young people to broaden their horizons and to try new things, and we already can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2025.”
