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.
Brass music in northern Germany? Of course! The legendary Austrian festival "Woodstock of Brass Music" is making its way to the north and we are setting sail for the first »Baltic Beach Brass« on the island of Rügen on the first weekend in September. The concept is simple: three days, Baltic Sea, beach and »Love, Peace and Brass Music«. Be there when clarinettist Matthias Schorn with Faltenradio, Christoph Moschberger and da Blechhauf'n, the JazzrauschBigband, Bobby Rausch, the NDR Bigband and many others turn the weekend into a roaring festival of brass music on numerous stages. And who knows: Maybe you will be standing with your ensemble on one of the stages in the middle of the »Baltic Beach Brass« and show us what you can do?
Pack your friends, take your instruments with you, or just come along. And whether you camp out, spend the night in the youth hostel or just turn every night into day: we are looking forward to you and lots of good music!
