The Festival International Opera Youth Forum became a firm trademark of Bydgoszcz and the region.

The sixth edition of the student performing arts festival was very diverse as for the repertoire. The audience could listen to the Baroque and Romantic pieces as well as to one operetta. The new formula was the Opera Gala of the Ostrava University students together with the Vocal Masterclass lead by dr Alexander Vovk. The festival was created thanks to the financial support of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and the Bydgoszcz City Hall. The honorary patronage of the festival: Bogdan Zdrojewski – the Minister of Culture and National Heritage, Piotr Całbecki – The Marshall of the Kuyiavian-Pomeranian Voivodship and Rafał Bruski – The President of the city of Bydgoszcz.
