MaerzMusik is organized by the Berliner Festspiele. It has evolved from a festival for contemporary music to a "festival for time issues", dedicated to exploring the phenomenon of time in its socio-political, philosophical and artistic dimensions. The effect of digital technologies on our daily lives is as much a topic as the artistic collaboration between humans and machines.

Owing to its tradition as a festival for contemporary compositions, MaerzMusik focuses on the temporality of music. A broad range of orchestral and chamber music, innovative musical theatre, experimental works and media art provide a rich panorama of contemporary music.

The programme of the festival is presented by established artists as well as young newcomers from all over the world. It includes world premières and new productions. Each year there are thematic focuses, and the festival concentrates on music from specific regions.

MaerzMusik - a place for innovation

MaerzMusik stands for openness – and this is the festival's recipe for success. Within just a few years MaerzMusik has gained an unusually large audience, keen to enter on a journey of artistic and philosophical discovery.
