November Music is the festival for all adventurous music lovers. Every year it brings together the most idiosyncratic and progressive makers and musicians from around the world. Not with the flow or against it, but with new, own flows. It is precisely by giving all those different sounds a place that November Music lets you hear a personal and own story, just like the makers themselves do. Experience modern composed music, jazz, world music, music theatre, pop, installations and genres that you never thought possible. November Music creates encounters and challenges makers to jump in at the deep end.
