Stimmungsbild vom Festival Glatt & Verkehrt


GLATT&VERKEHRT is a festival in July that takes audiences on musical voyages of discovery around the globe. The program of events ranges from authentic, traditional and contemporary music from various cultures and brings artists from (nearly) all parts of the world to Krems and into the Wachau. What all of them have in common is a desire to explore their own musical roots – regardless of whether these roots are in folk music, jazz, classical or the avant-garde. Venues such as Göttweig Abbey, the Winzer Krems winery and Spitz castle serve as backdrops for these concerts by international musicians.

Dates in 2019: July 12 to 28
