18.07. – 01.08.2020

Presented every two years by Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt (IMD), the Darmstadt Summer Course is an international “hot spot” for contemporary and experimental musical practices and composition: it is summer academy, festival and discourse platform at the same time and a meeting point of over 400 composers, interpreters, performers, sound artists and scholars. Since 1946, the Darmstadt Summer Course has been aiming at bringing together strong musical and aesthetic positions, providing a framework for high-level performance and discourse, a lively international network and an inspiring experience for our participants and guests.

The next Darmstadt Summer Course will take place from 18 July to 1 August 2020, offering an intense program of courses, workshops, concerts, lectures, discussions and think tanks with around 60 tutors and many guests. Around 400 active participants from around 50 nations are expected.

Online-registration (registration form, credit-card payment of participation fee) started on 22 January 2020 and will either close as soon as an activity is booked up or on 31 March at the latest.
For several activities, there is a selection process in advance.
