WHAT PAST PARTICIPANTS ARE SAYING

We Are

Unlike Anything Else

“ 

                     

                      ”

I attend lots of festivals - I even did so during lockdown - and INMF2020 really stood out. I felt that the faculty of composers and performers were exceptionally generous with their time and knowledge. More than that, however, I felt that they had a clear and current focus on the world of music making, gave honest answers to difficult questions, and actually offered me practical, usable advice on how to further my career. I came away from every session feeling energised and motivated. I would strongly recommend this festival.
