Fête goes mobile!

The open-air on your doorstep

The Fête de la Musique has long been known and loved beyond France’s borders. The basic idea behind the event is simple: music – free and outdoors – the more diverse, the better, as is traditionally said worldwide on 21 June. The Fête also has its place in Dresden: since 2016, Kultur Aktiv e.V. has organised the open-air “Fête de la Musique meets Europe” on Dresden’s Neumarkt together with the state capital Dresden and the Institut français Dresden.

In 2021, when everything was different, a special edition music festival “Fête macht mobil!” took place. – The open air on your doorstep” took place in Dresden’s districts: Even more decentralised, even more mobile, with local and international acts, for young and old – in the spirit of the Fête de la Musique. Newly conceived for Dresden’s citizens and visitors, the two-day festival brought local acts and a musical surprise from Dresden’s partnership Strasbourg directly to the doorstep of Dresden’s citizens on Friday, 10 September 2021 on the grounds of GEH8 Kunstraum und Ateliers e.V. and on Saturday, 11 September 2021 on the forecourt of the Prohlis Centre.

Involved: loop artist Konrad Küchenmeister, the acoustic rock band Solche, rapper Kollege Hartmann, singer and songwriter Annemaríe Reynis & Band as well as a French surprise act from Dresden’s twin city Strasbourg and much more. Magician Zafetti will provide a magical moment.

The project “Fête goes mobil! – The open air on your doorstep” is sponsored by the Office for Culture and Monument Protection of the state capital Dresden. For several years, the state capital has also organized a band exchange with the French twin city of Strasbourg as part of the Fête de la Musique.

Organized by Kultur Aktiv e.V. in cooperation with Institut français Dresden. Thanks to all partners and sponsors: City of Dresden, Eurometropole Strasbourg, GEH8 Kunstraum und Ateliers e.V., Prohliszentrum Dresden, Quartiersmanagement Prohlis, Zu Hause in Prohlis e.V.
