Festspiel Favourites

Unexpected musical experiences and personal encounters are trademarks of the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The festival programme includes a broad range of series and »festivals within the festival«, where visitors can discover and focus on particular elements through a wide range of supplementary activities such as guided tours, listening experiments, artist talks and discussions over several days.
Promising young artists from all over the world present themselves in the series »Junge Elite« and »Bothmer-Musik«. The »Landpartie« invites you to a musical excursion to the countryside. And the »Grenzgänge« format takes you into the young jazz scene. Discover more about our various Festspiel elements here.

45 minutes before a Friday concert in summer

Have you ever wondered what stories are hidden behind our venues? Or which people make our venues so special? Or are you looking forward to finding out more about the background to the programme before the concert? Then come to our »45'« format, which we offer every Friday during the festival summer around one of the two concerts taking place. Exactly 45 minutes before the concert begins, you can gain insights into the evening's programme, make an extraordinary discovery or meet an interesting personality. You will find out exactly what to expect in the week before your concert visit. This additional event is included in your concert ticket. »45'« has been taking place since the 2022 Festival Summer thanks to the support of the Festspielfreunde-Förderverein der Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern e. V..
