Plans for 2023 & 2024

Below are links to festivals that are currently in the works for 2021 and 2022. Proposals have been prepared for hosting the 2023 and 2024 ISCM World New Music Days festivals. The ISCM General Assembly has granted its approval for the 2023 World New Music Days to take place in South Africa, the first time this festival has ever taken place on the continent of Africa. The 2023 edition will also be of particular significance as it will be the centenary of the very first ISCM Festival. Please come back to this page for updates which will post as soon as we have them.
