Presented every two years by Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt (IMD), the Darmstadt Summer Course is an international platform 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 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.

For the 2021 Darmstadt Summer Course, we are in the process of creating a hybrid format: We are still hoping that festival and academy can – at least to some extent – take place physically in Darmstadt from 31 July until 11 August 2021, but we are also getting prepared for different online solutions, depending on the development of the pandemic.
