56,000 Visitors: The Dresden Music Festival Continues its Success Story

The 41st Dresden Music Festival has continued its success story under the leadership of artistic director Jan Vogler: under the motto »MIRRORS«, a total of 67 events between May 10 and June 10, 2018 invited concertgoers to reflect upon the power of music in our society. More than 1,500 artists from all over the world brought a vibrant Festival atmosphere to 24 performance venues in Dresden. About 56,000 visitors from Germany and abroad were attracted by this magic atmosphere lasting 32 days. Accordingly, the resulting figures are positive: with 91 percent of seats sold, ticket sales revenue rose from 1.4 million to 1.54 million Euro, despite the strong increase already observed in 2017.
