CTM Festival for Adventurous Music and Art

Founded in 1999, CTM Festival is a prominent international festival dedicated to contemporary electronic, digital, and experimental music and arts. The yearly festival takes place in January/February and pairs 10 days of concerts, club nights and performances together with a vast daytime programme of talks, screenings, workshops, networking events, installations and exhibitions spread over some of Berlin's most exciting cultural and nightlife venues: HAU Hebbel am Ufer, Berghain, Astra, YAAM, Festsaal Kreuzberg, Heimathafen Neukölln, SchwuZ and Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien are among the many locations visited in recent editions.

Since its inception, CTM has taken place concurrently and cooperatively with transmediale – international festival for art and digital culture, Berlin. Together the two parallel festivals comprise one of the most comprehensive and relevant occasions in the world for yearly reflection on digital culture, attracting a broad and diverse public and offering artists, producers, agents and curators a lively platform for informed, thoughtful debate and networking opportunities.

CTM Festival is an independent project and organized by DISK Berlin. Next to the annual festival, DISK produces and curates events and projects during the year, both in Berlin and abroad. DISK is a founding member of the ICAS network – International Cities of Advanced Sound.
