About

Be part of this year’s CoMA Festival and celebrate with us and our many partners the joy of participating in contemporary music making. With events occurring throughout the UK and beyond, there are opportunities to premiere commissioned works alongside professional players and take part in a range of workshops and concerts. As a grass-roots expression of music making the Festival sets out to empower musicians of all kinds to serve as catalyst and a challenge for what happens next in new music.

National partners include CoMA, Making Music, nonclassical and Sound and Music. The Festival is supported by funding from:

We are part of the Keychange initiative encouraging festivals and music organisations to achieve a 50:50 gender balance by 2022.
