Classical:NEXT is the leading international meeting for the renewal of classical music, 1,200 professionals attended the fifth edition last May. Classical:NEXT’s exceptional and highly acclaimed programme is made “by the community, for the community”: An independent jury assembles a handpicked selection of artists, speakers and projects each year from proposals coming in from all over the globe.


All movers, shakers and everyday innovators from all sectors of the scene are invited to submit their proposals for the Showcases, Club Showcases, Conferences and Project Pitches to be held at Classical:NEXT 2017 in de Doelen, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.


We are calling for outstanding “NEXT” artists, projects, future-oriented topics and interactive conference formats from all corners of the classical music world whether that be early, contemporary, traditional or experimental. You can make a proposal online easily and for free.


The submission deadline for Classical:NEXT 2017 is Friday, 30 September 2016.
