Breach Festival in Nicosia on April 5-6

Breach is a festival dedicated to Improvisation and Experimental music.

Breach’s mission is to boost and support these practices in Cyprus: free improvisation, free jazz, contemporary classical music, experimental electronic music, sound-art, as well as many other uncharted sound territories.

This year is the first edition of the Breach Festival and it has joined forces with the Irtijal festival in Lebanon – the largest festival in Beirut which celebrates its 22nd anniversary of supporting improvised and experimental music. The musicians who will be hosting the festival come from Cyprus, Greece, Lebanon, and Germany, are all accomplished in the field of improvisation and experimental music, and have a long history of performing at recognised venues and festivals around the world.
