EUROMicroFest 2013 Freiburg, Germany

“There are lots of outlets for music which uses microtones in the many  
festivals and series which come under the banner of 'contemporary  
music'. The idea of having a festival which is defined by  
microtonality is to focus on those musics which cut across a wide  
range of genres which do, or attempt to, use differently tuned pitches  
to express a fresh emotional pallet. Whilst this may involve new  
compositional systems the emphasis is on the music rather than the  
systems although there is a channel - through open presentations – for  
composers/theorists/instrument makers and designers to share and  
demonstrate their ideas. Where practicable and possible, EUROMicroFest  
may also include world music and/or historical music which is/was  
motivated by unconventional approaches to pitch or towards theories of  
expanding the conventional tonal system.”
