New Music Conference

Do you feel at home with November Music’s festival programming?
Can’t get enough of contemporary composed music, jazz, new world music, music theatre, visual music, electronics & soundscapes and sound installations?

And you are a music professional? Come join us.

Due to the latest additional emergency ordinances set up by the Dutch government, November Music – our host festival – had to cancel all their concerts to our regret, but this doesn’t mean that we cannot meet.

We would have loved to bring the Verkadefabriek in ‘s-Hertogenbosch to your homes by livestreaming from the conference venue and welcoming speakers on stage. However, with the new restrictions we will now set up a complete and solely online conference programme.

You can tune in for the New Music Conference on 11 and 12 November for exclusive on demand panels and enjoy a full online conference day on Friday 13 November.

The exact line-up of live and online talks is to be found on our Programme page; expect Friday November 13th to be an inspiring day of presentations, workshops and panel discussions with international reach. The topics at hand will be of interest to composers, performing artists, programmers, publishers, record labels, managers and booking agents.

Rewatch pre-recorded sessions

In the run up to the conference day on Friday 13 November we broadcasted a few pre-recorded panels on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 November about Dutch copyright issues and about funding your international ambitions. You can rewatch these presentations on the pages of the respective panels:
