Festival Open Air

A project of the Bayreuth Festival, realised by BF Medien GmbH.

As the latest project within the framework of Diskurs Bayreuth, the Bayreuth Festival 2022 presents the Festival Open Air.

For the first time, anyone interested will have the opportunity to experience musical events with Bayreuth Festival performers in a summery, informal picnic atmosphere. Although Richard Wagner’s oeuvre forms the anchor point in terms of content, it should be possible to interpret it in a deliberately cross-cast and cross-genre manner in order to promote the importance of different perspectives and approaches to the same themes in the long term. This unconventional approach is also reflected in the otherwise untypical festival programme: Bayreuth Festival without dress code, without conventional seating, without admission charge.

The programme will be announced on this website at a later date.
