Tehran Contemporary Sounds Festival

The Tehran Contemporary Sounds Festival, formerly known as Gate of Tehran at its inaugural edition in 2018, once again in 2021 brought together musicians and artists from Germany and abroad who have a connection to Iran. Their experimental, digital and in some cases audiovisual works were presented over three days in the Kunstquartier Bethanien in a packed programme of performances, plus an exhibition by the Nullsight collective. Other guests included Pari San, Nazanin Noori, Sahar and the Sheen Trio.
