In 2020 the Dresden Music Festival makes a bold statement under the motto »Inspiration Nature«

Diversity is the magic word – in nature and at the 2020 Dresden Music Festival. Director Jan Vogler has chosen the motto »INSPIRATION NATURE« for the festival, which runs from May 12 to June 12, 2020, presenting a richly varied programme in 63 concerts at 25 performance venues, effortlessly combining the New York Philharmonic with the Senegalese world musician Pape Diouf and the rock legend Sting. Another focus of the 43rd Dresden Music Festival in 2020 is also on Ludwig van Beethoven’s oeuvre: 19 concerts are dedicated to that great revolutionary of the classical era, reflecting the entire breadth of his work in many different facets.

Dresden Music Festival Celebrates Brilliant Finale and Sets Revenue Record

For the Dresden Music Festival, the most diverse and successful season in its history draws to a close today. The legendary guitarist Eric Clapton performs the last concert, bringing 26 vivid festival days under the motto »Visions« to a rousing finale. Over the course of three and a half weeks, a multi-faceted program featuring 56 concerts of different genres – from classical to jazz, world music and blues rock – curated by Artistic Director Jan Vogler proved once again that the Dresden Music Festival, founded in 1978, has long risen to the top of the European festival landscape.

Finale with a Premiere: Eric Clapton and Jan Vogler at the Dresden Music Festival

The 42nd Dresden Music Festival ends with a premiere on June 10, 2019: the legendary guitarist Eric Clapton plays the final concert of the classical music festival, which was founded in 1978, thereby broadening the festival’s spectrum to include rock and blues music for the very first time. A very special artistic encounter awaits the approximately 4,000 visitors to the Dresden Fair.
