About / Festival

Soundstream: Adelaide New Music Festival (SANMF) is a celebration of new music in Australia. Established in 2008 by Artistic Director Gabriella Smart as a platform for collaboration, discourse and performance of new music, Soundstream is committed to the development of contemporary music practices and the creation of new works through the support of emerging and established Australian composers and performers. The Festival  serves a unique role in the cultural life of South Australia. As the only event in the state to specifically celebrate classical contemporary music performance and practice, the Festival has developed a reputation for clever programming and the highest artistic calibre, by engaging world-class performers and nurturing vital networks and collaborations locally, nationally and internationally.
