KFJC 89.7 FM co-presents the Bay Area’s Creative Music Festival

The Outsound New Music Summit is an entirely artist-organized event by OUTSOUND PRESENTS, a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation based in San Francisco.

Every year the Outsound New Music Summit showcases some of the most innovative and pioneering new music that is happening in California and beyond.

Our Goal: To bring highly innovative music and art to the increasing number of people seeking a real “alternative” to the status quo of music being presented in the Bay Area.

The Summit performance schedule includes music and sound ranging from free improvisation, to electronic manipulation, to noise, to sonic sculptural art reflecting genre-busting exploration and creativity. In addition, the festival seeks to promote intermedia arts, fostering cross-pollination through film, dance, and writing. The Summit has supported more than 360 performing groups and artists since 2002.

Your tax deductible donations will benefit the programs of Outsound Presents, a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization (Tax ID# 80-0252353)

Bring your inquisitive mind. And leave your intellectual insecurity behind.

Bay Area groups are breaking the rules of contemporary sound by making music that’s as evocative as the visuals.

If California is the final frontier, this summit points to what lies beyond its borders.
