KAUFMAN MUSIC CENTER PRESENTS

Ecstatic Music Festival

audacious, one-night-only presentations of surprising musical collaborations

"No series has better instincts in fomenting post-genre alchemy than the Ecstatic Music Festival."
(Steve Smith, The New Yorker)

Get up close and personal with trailblazing artists stretching their wings and diving into collaborations that take their work in bold new directions. The only music festival that exclusively presents new work resulting from collaborations, the EMF has been hailed as “a who's who of the music scene” (WQXR) and "audacious combinations and post-genre hybrids" (The New Yorker). The Ecstatic Music Festival is curated by composer Judd Greenstein. Seating is general admission.

Playlist: Watch videos of the 2019 EMF artists.
