The first large festival of New Music in Mecklenburg Western-Pomerania, titled Bridges, was established in 2004. In 2006, the festival will set out on a new course by integrating regional concert organizers and orchestras into the event in hopes of encouraging them to include current contemporary works in their own programmes on a permanent basis.

Participants / artists: ensemble recherche, ensemble mv-connect, Rostock HMT Ensemble für Neue Musik, Mauricio Kagel, Liszt Trio Weimar, duo con delizio, Steffen Kretzschmar, Sven David Sandström (S), Alexandr Matrosor (RUS) and others
