30 days, 90 events, 45 venues - for four weeks, the month of contemporary music offers exciting events all over Berlin. Whether music theatre, KIangkunst, real-time music or improvisation, Berlin's contemporary music scene presents itself in all its diversity in September.

Berlin is considered one of the most exciting cities for contemporary music.

The variety of currents meeting here as well as the density of events is impressive all year round. Together with Berlin ensembles, artists and organisers, the Contemporary Music Month presents this diversity in 30 festival days: from established ensembles in concert halls to newcomers in clubs, everything is represented.
