The idea

The new youth format in the Carinthian Summer Music Festival, “CS under 30” is aimed at young artists and ensembles in the EU member states plus Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway (EFTA countries).

The idea is to promote and present the diversity and quality of young art and music creation in Europe. The Carinthian Summer Music Festival in Carinthia and the Middle Festival in Cividale, Friuli, see it as their task to strengthen the cultural diversity in the Alps-Adriatic region and beyond with this cooperation and to invite people from all over the world to visit their festivals.


The procedure

There are two separate calls: the Carinthian Summer Music Festival Open Call and the Mittelfest Open Call. Both calls start on December 16, 2021 and end on February 16, 2022. Interested parties can apply for both calls or only for one of the calls on the websites of the co-partners.

The winning projects will be selected by a jury of young curators under 30 for the Carinthian Summer Music Festival and the Mittelfest. The festival directors of both festivals have agreed to perform one of the winning projects of the other festival in their festival as well. The participating artists* or ensembles will be informed about the result of their submissions by e-mail by March 7, 2022. The winning projects selected for the Carinthian Summer Music Festival will be announced via the festival website and social media by May 27, 2022.
