The inaugural London Contemporary Music Festival 2013 will run over two weekends in July and August in Peckham.
As well as several premieres of new works, including a major, hour-long new work by guitar orchestra leaderGlenn Branca (pictured), the festival will see performances of music by dozens of twentieth century composers, including Iannis Xenakis, Laurie Anderson, Brian Eno and Ennio Morricone.
Also on the bill are performances of works by Michael Finnissy, Philip Glass, Gyorgy Ligeti, Alvin Lucier and many more.
The festival will take place over two long weekends from 25 July to 4 August at Bold Tendencies, the arts space in Peckham’s multistorey car park. All events are free but must be booked – head here for more information.
