The ISCM World Music Days is an annual contemporary music festival organized by the International Society for Contemporary Music, originally created in 1923 as the ISCM Festival as a means to support the most advanced composition tendencies.[1][2] Each edition is held in a different location, and the programmes are organized by a jury after evaluating the submissions of each ISCM national section.
