CTM – Festival for Adventurous Music and Arts – is one of the most important festivals of innovative pop, electronic and experimental music in German-speaking countries today. During its thirteen years of existence, CTM has gained a reputation for being an essential event, ranking among the world’s most cutting-edge festivals, and has received repeated praise from the media as being „Germany’s most important gathering for electronic and experimental music” and “Berlin’s best Pop festival.”
Every February, the CTM Festival invites the most thrilling artists of the year to perform in front of an international audience. Through the festival, as well as various events curated by CTM throughout the year, the organization reflects the latest musical currents against the backdrop of new technologies, modern art, historical perspective and social issues. Beyond producing a festival that transgresses individual scenes and genres, CTM is also a discursive platform for critical reflection on music, its societal relevance and the frameworks it thrives in.
It is through this spirit, as well as its partnership with the international festival for art and digital culture, transmediale, which takes place concurrently, that CTM makes an impact far beyond the world of music, appealing also to creative minds in diverse domains. Deeply rooted in Berlin’s music and art scene, CTM is the unrivalled epitome of everything that currently makes Berlin one of the most exciting cities on the planet: dare-devilry, fresh ideas, the guts for edgy experimentation, intensity, enthusiasm, authentic venues, and an exceptional density per square yard of talent, know-how and creative verve.
Intensively connected on international levels, and continuously in close contact with artists, professionals and the audience, CTM takes a strong stand for a vivid and artistically independent music culture.
