Rudolstadt Festival

Rudolstadt Festival is one of Europe’s most prestigious festivals for roots, folk, and world music. For four days in July, there are about 300 performances by 150 artists. The musical richness and its contrasts hold out the promise of unexpected discoveries and account for the festival’s mesmerizing appeal. Every year Rudolstadt showcases the music and dance style of one particular country. Other key elements include workshops, the dozens of buskers in the historical town centre, the instrument makers’ centre, global club culture, exhibitions and a big children’s festival.
