Lucerne Festival Forward is a brand new festival for the music of the present day, devised by the musicians of the Lucerne Festival Contemporary Network. Will you be attending the inaugural edition of this festival in Lucerne? Get ready to attend concerts that break new ground in contemporary music.

A brand new festival for the music of our time

The Lucerne Festival Academy acts as an international network that has grown to 1.200 artists, curating programmes, prompting topical discussions and showing leadership in contemporary music. They bridge the gap between contemporary music and the general public, encouraging new ways of interacting with audiences and experimenting with unusual concert formats.

The theme of Lucerne Festival Forward’s inaugural edition is Networks. This is a reference to the Lucerne Festival Academy network which developed the programme, and also provides a common thread running through the whole event, forging connections between the different musicians, concert settings and audiences.
