In April 2017, Q3Ambientfest celebrated its premiere at fabrik Potsdam. The three-day boutique music festival, founded and carefully curated by the brothers Sebastian and Daniel Selke, also known as the award-winning Potsdam cello-piano duo CEEYS, is dedicated in particular to neoclassical and experimental music. The open-minded music lover is invited to get to know a handpicked selection of established and rising contemporary musicians and composers.
The festival also aims to create a special interface between music from the avant-garde to pop and Potsdam's diverse historical architecture, from neoclassical castles to GDR prefabricated buildings. The name Q3A is an abbreviation for the so-called "Querwandbau" from GDR times.

Q3A takes place at fabrik Potsdam from 03-05 April 2020, in partnership with Dutch music initiative Fluister, piano & coffee co., Traurig und Untanzbar, Klavins Piano Manufaktúra Kft., SOMA Laboratory, 30CC, Schh. series and Brudenell Piano Sessions. It also joins Piano Day, an annual worldwide event and platform for piano related projects founded by a group of likeminded people around pianist and composer Nils Frahm, that takes place on the 88th day of the year because of the number of keys on the instrument being celebrated.
