Discovery Nights | 1 Guided Tour + 1 Apéro + 1 Concert


rainy days 2022

out of this world


The festival rainy days, Luxembourg’s international hotspot for contemporary music, sets out to discover faraway, utopian and imaginary spheres in November, following the motto «out of this world».

More than any other art form, music has the power to transport us to other universes, or even create them anew. Contemporary music has always aimed to invent or discover new sonic worlds – whether through unfamiliar playing techniques, advanced technology or simply wild imagination.

In 2022, rainy days invites the audience to 21 concerts, performances and installations featuring 16 world premieres and new works, to explore (not only sound) worlds beyond our own: spiritual resonances for orchestra, digital data networks, dream-like journeys through virtual realities, immersive physical environments, idiosyncratic vocal soundscapes, poetic puppetry as well as sounds of birds, forests, melting glaciers and outer space…
