The most influential international festival of new and experimental music in IRAN
Tehran Contemporary Music Festival

TCMF is an annual, international festival of contemporary and new music, taking place over 7 days and consisting of approximately 30 events – including concerts, Improvisations, multi-media projects, discussion panels, talks and workshops– with a related Learning and Participation program devised and implemented to reflect the artistic program and respond to regional need.

TCMF aims to provide life-changing and unique artistic experiences to as wide an audience as possible; to be an international platform for new music and related contemporary art forms; to enthuse existing audiences and draw in new ones through adventurous programming and informed, stylish presentation, and to be an active cultural partner within the region.

We accept concert proposals from international artists interested in performance during TCMF, as well as their ideas for workshops, master classes, and collaborative projects.
