Theme of the festival is "Listen to the world". The Call for Works will possibly go out end of 2006, contextual music is expected to be entered, short works preferably. The works will be curated rather than selected by a jury. 3 regions are involved, each with their own focus and curators. In Visby the focus is vocal music and wind music, in Växjö the focus is chamber music and electronic music, in Gothenburg the focus is cross over (world-around perspective). Main organizations are VICC, COMA and OPEN. The budget is 2 million euro, with income from the national state as well as regional governments. There will be 2 General Assembly sessions in Visby, 1 in Växjö and 2 in Gothenburg. A charted flight from Visby to Växjö is arranged and bus transport from Växjö to Gothenburg. The whole festival is schedule 24 September to 5 October. Website www.listentotheworld.se and www.wmd2009.se"
