The Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA is a musical utopia for innovative musicians in the beautiful Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts from July 15- Aug 5, 2017. The festival is dedicated to adventurous contemporary music and also includes African and Latin music workshops, electronics and music business seminars, free events in the community, and more. Applications are online now, and are due January 18, 2017.

Says a past participant: "I have never had an experience like this before: the idea of building the kind of musical world one wants to live in seems to be something that is really possible here -- it's a place of community and possibility that is utterly transformative."
