Young Bangla, the largest youth platform of the nation has been organizing the Joy Bangla Concert every year since 2015, this is the time for 5th round of call for the music lovers. Joy Bangla Concert is not only the biggest rock musical show of the country; rather it’s a firm call upon every young mind who truly believes in the spirit of freedom with which the War of Liberation was fought in 1971.
With the motto “Connecting the Dots”, Young Bangla has become a launching pad for thousands of youths and youth-led organizations, supporting them with resources, capacity enhancement training, and encouragement, so they can add all their game-changing ideas to the welfare of the nation. As we all know that youth are the steadfast, a ready to call warden of the nation who willingly fought for the liberation of Bangladesh. In March 7th 1971, great leader Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s fiery speech drove an entire generation of young souls to sacrifice their lives for independence.
