Classical:NEXT 2021 Call for Proposals for the showcases, conference and project pitches is now closed!
Every Summer, Classical:NEXT launches an annual Call for Proposals for the showcase and conference programmes, inviting artists, presenters and speakers to apply to take part. Each year, our international, independent jury, review each proposal and from them select the official Classical:NEXT programme.
To be made aware when our next Call for Proposals is announced, sign up for our newsletter or keep an eye on this website or our social media. Sign up for our newsletter!
You can register online for Classical:NEXT in the months leading up to the event. The online registration for Classical:NEXT 2021 is not open yet. Keep an eye on our website or subscribe to our newsletter to hear about it first.

It is best to register as soon as possible in order to get the best price. The next edition will take place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, 27 – 30 September 2021.
All stand and person registrations remain valid for the 2021 edition, so there is no need to worry. By keeping your registration active, you will secure the same price (even in the case of a price increase).

Keeping your registration also means you keep hold of an active C:N NET account, giving you access to our online database of 5000+ professionals, as well as online activities such as voting for the Classical:NEXT Innovation Award.
In the coming weeks, we will provide further information on registering for Classical:NEXT 2021. Thank you for your kind understanding, your patience and continued support in these challenging times.

For the latest information, please see our most recent announcement.
Classical:NEXT 2021 remains the postponed edition of Classical:NEXT 2020 and much of the programme will remain intact. It will be adjusted to include new elements from the latest Call for Proposals, as well as according to how the event can be realised on site to keep in line with regulations in The Netherlands in September.

We will release information as and when it becomes available. For the latest, please see our most recent announcement.
Journalists play a vital role in the dissemination of music and in keeping the important discourse on this art form alive. Classical:NEXT acknowledges this by offering a reduced rate to media professionals, subject to approval.

If you are a delegate who will attend Classical:NEXT first and foremost in your role as a journalist or as a professional involved in the editorial work of a music media company, you are invited to register for our special Media Rate. Simply complete the delegate registration as normal, and check the "media registration" box when you are entering your personal delegate data – about half way through the registration process – and send a copy of your press credentials to registration@classicalnext.com. After confirmation from our communications department, you will be granted the discounted media rate registration price.

Press accreditation (including free delegate-level access) to Classical:NEXT 2021 is reserved for a limited number of journalists who report on Classical:NEXT or our showcase artists, subject to approval. Note that accredited journalists are not listed as delegates in the printed guide nor at the online database C:N NET. One accreditation per reporting media only.
