A special year requires special measures: We are giving away free face masks so that you can enjoy the Month of Contemporary Music safely AND in style. We choose to see the mask requirement not as a restriction but as a means to get back to the life of concerts we’ve all missed.

In 2020, the contemporary music scene in Berlin has been demonstrating its high level of flexibility and resilience. Ensembles, venues and artists are rising to the challenges of our new “normal” circumstances, adapting with creative and experimental formats that enable active participation in music, its discourses and thinking spaces – while observing distance and hygiene requirements.

This way, even in this crazy year, you can discover current works of contemporary Berlin ensembles, artists and composers in concerts, performances and sound installations in large concert halls and in independent venues that comprise the scene, all month long.
