Discover Festival

International orchestras, the stars of the classical music scene and young musicians perform at the most beautiful locations in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The interplay of the incomparable lake and coastal landscape, the venues and the music make our concerts special experiences. We discover young talents and give them space to develop. The musicians are part of our growing festival family and shape the programme through personal concerts and multifaceted projects. Our common goal is to maintain our tradition and to be open to new ideas. The open and creative dialogue with our audience is of great importance to us. We want to move our guests emotionally and stimulate them intellectually.

We make Mecklenburg-Vorpommern resound!

Each year the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern award prizes to the most promising soloists and ensembles as well as an audience prize.
