Programme changes and additions reserved.

Even though our Digital Festival has to operate almost without a budget and the artists do not ask for a fee for their contribution, we welcome any amount of money to support our artists. With the funds raised from donated tickets and direct donations, we try to remunerate the artists of the 2020 Festival for work already done, such as programme conception and rehearsal work, and, if possible, also to pay a cancellation compensation.

You too can support us with a donation:

Right now via donation form or

All videos have been pre-produced and can be watched even after the given time during the whole Festival period (availability of Festival Specials may vary). The videos are not live broadcasts.
