Sacrum Profanum

The festival is an international project which has become one of the most fascinating music events in Europe. It presents the latest music with the aim of blurring the boundaries between contemporary music, frequently perceived as difficult and inaccessible, and the achievements of ambitious pop and experimental scenes.

The concerts “profanate” the ideas of classics, traditions and conservatism, and “sacralise” experimentations, avantgarde and curiosity. As well as holding concerts, Sacrum Profanum also features operas, exhibitions and audio art installations, meetings, discussions and workshops exploring the festival’s theme.

There are also plans to expand into ballet in the future! Stylistically, the programme is an alchemical blend of three themes: 20th-century contemporary music, avantgarde and indie-classical.
