TodaysArt is the annual international festival for Art, Music and Technology in The Hague, Netherlands that takes place in the end of September. It is also the name of the cultural production agency[1] TodaysArt (Stichting The Generator) that produces the festival and other TodaysArt branded events. The festival offers a selection of art and entertainment that can be described as experimental or cutting-edge,[2] while the music program, though varied, usually features a considerable amount of electronic music. The festival is staged in a shifting selection of venues around the city, many of which are usually not used for art or performances.[3]
