Festival Reports


satellite picture

The idea of this small project is to promote "Festival Reports" in a similar way as we have Studio Reports. The goal is to promote your Festival, to describe goals of different Festivals all over the world, to make available to composer a list of available festivals during the year from all over the world.

If you want to see the festival you organize or your festival report (you can also write a report as a participant to a Festival where you were present), mentioned in this page fill the form. If at the end we will have enough participation we could also organize an evening of short festival presentations.
