hcmf// Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival

Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (hcmf//) is an annual international festival of contemporary and new music that takes place over 10 days each November consisting of approximately 50 events, including concerts, music-theatre, dance, multimedia, talks and film.

hcmf// strives to make new music accessible to increasingly varied audiences and participants. The Learning and Participation programme plays a vital role in forging and developing relationships with a wide variety of local communities and seeks to break down barriers and perceptions surrounding new music.
