This is the first year that I’m not going to at least a portion of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival since I first went in 2007. I’m sure I’ll go back, probably next year, but meanwhile I’m going to be watching and listening carefully. There are a lot of ways to track what’s happening at this year’s festival, wherever in the world you happen to be.
@HCMFUK: the official handle for the festival
@mckenzie_gr: Graham McKenzie, the festival director
@majaratkje: Maja Ratkje, this year’s Composer in Residence
@5against4: Simon Cummings, blogging and tweeting quite regularly about the festival
As always, BBC Radio 3 is broadcasting much of the festival. You can listen to the opening concert until Saturday here.
