Festival of New is a whirlwind of freshly devised music and sound, exploring some of the most exciting work being made in the UK. Some projects are ready to take flight, while others are just beginning to take shape. All have been developed in Snape and Aldeburgh on Residencies that take place all year round, giving artists the freedom to take risks, be ambitious and release their creative spirit.
