    The Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA (the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art) is a 3-week musical utopia for innovative composers and performers in the beautiful Berkshire mountains of western Massachusetts. The program is dedicated entirely to adventurous contemporary music. Composers will have their new works performed. Players will perform in ensembles alongside their teachers. The program includes daily performances in the museum galleries, and concludes with a three-day blow-out festival, LOUD Weekend, performed by the festival fellows and special guests. The program also features  African and Latin music workshops, electronics and music business seminars, free events  in the community, and more.

    The 2020 Festival has been postponed to the summer of 2021.
