The Dresden Music Festival Is Back on the Live Stage — and Will Continue into Autumn 2021
Pablo Picasso's 1924 abstract work "Nature Morte a la Charlotte" discovered by French police and returned to the Pompidou Centre museum.

The Dresden Music Festival has returned to the stage with ten events from June 4 to June 13, 2021, making it the first international festival in Germany to resume live performances.

Audience and artists alike honoured the director Jan Vogler’s tireless commitment to live culture in these challenging times: With around 5,400 visitors, 91 percent of seats were sold for the 19 events.

Despite the pandemic-induced intimate edition, the Dresden Music Festival managed to fully express its range of genre.

For artists like the Dresden Festival Orchestra under Ivor Bolton, fado singer Gisela João, the Vision String Quartet or the New York Gypsy-Allstars, their guest performance in Dresden was the first appearance in front of a live audience since the beginnig of the pandemic.

Apart from the Kulturpalast, it was the picturesque Stallhof especially that served as a summery open-air venue. Here, the June festival ended on Sunday (June 13) with an exclusive duo concert with Jan Vogler and guitarist Pablo Sáinz-Villegas (photo attached, credit: Oliver Killig).

Originally, eight live-streamed concerts marked the start of the 44th Dresden Music Festival from May 24 reaching around 100,000 listeners across the globe.

"I thank all artists, our passionate audience, and my incredible team as well as the city of Dresden, the free state of Saxony and all our sponsors for their flexibility that made this festival possible," says Jan Vogler, director of the Dresden Music Festival.

For the first time, the festival atmosphere will continue to flare up at selected venues in the coming months. In July, the Dresden Frankfurt Dance Company will stage their planned cooperation "With these hands" with the festival in the Festspielhaus Hellerau. On Aug. 25, the Senegalese world musician Pape Diouf’s Germany debut is planned in the Junge Garde.

The third part of the 44th Dresden Music Festival follows in November with a curated selection of concerts originally planned for May and June — now celebrated as the Autumn Festival. Tickets already purchased for these events remain valid. Due to currently unclear space capacities, presales will start in September 2021.
