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.
Each year the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern award prizes to the most promising soloists and ensembles as well as an audience prize. Prize-winners are invited back to the Festspiele regularly and become part of our Festspiel family. Over the years, our unique prize-winning family has grown to include members such as Daniel Hope, Julia Fischer, Nils Mönkemeyer, Daniel Müller-Schott, Matthias Schorn and many more who regularly return to the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for the intimate concerts and multi-faceted projects.
