Don't stop the music!

Although the encouraging news about the successes in vaccines development and distribution give us confidence, it is still not possible to hold events such as ours. Therefore, regretably, we are forced to postpone all of our events (concerts and the competition) until further notice. We will inform you as soon as we have a precise date. We ask for your understanding and look forward to seeing you!

“Don’t stop the music!” is both our motto and our innermost wish in times when we need culture more than ever. Our need and desire to come together, build bridges and experience culture together will hopefully be fulfilled again in 2021. At the moment, it is not easy to establish a new festival. But we have succeeded: we are coming to Germany!

Piano Summer has been the cultural festival par excellence in Southern Europe for years – a project that has attracted more than 8,000 visitors since its inception in 2012. The enthusiasm of the audience increases from year to year. The unconventional concept, far from the busy cultural highways of the European cultural scene, offers an unforgettable musical experience with the regional flair that goes with it. And not only for fans of classical music. World stars meet newcomers to the arts scene – even off-stage: the artists up close and personal! For the German edition of the festival, we are offering a series of concerts at several venues in Bavaria. Thus, in addition to top-class concerts with numerous highlights, visitors will also experience Munich’s urban character as well as the most beautiful places in the surrounding area.

In addition to concerts with domestically and internationally renowned artists, a competition and a summer academy will take place during the 12 weeks of summer.

What would the cultural landscape of Upper Bavaria be without the diverse cultural offerings that associations regularly put together with a great deal of commitment, competence and experience? They contribute to making the people of Upper Bavaria feel culturally at home. This is also the case with the KulturBox association, which puts on the Piano Summer music festival. With its unconventional music program, it offers a summertime artistic treat that benefits locals and guests alike – and in many places, from Munich, Grünwald and Unterschleißheim to Benediktbeuern and Garmisch-Partenkirchen. As a European cultural network, the festival also builds bridges between regions: from Southern Europe, where it started, to Bavaria.

Regional art and culture are also close to the heart of the district of Upper Bavaria. It provides around 1.6 million euros annually for this purpose and was also happy to sponsor the Piano Summer.
