Since 1997 the annual Glatt&Verkehrt festival relives the magic and joy of discovering unusual and exceptional musical talent. It attracts distinctive and exciting music projects from the farthest corners of the globe to visit the Wachau region and Krems. In the meantime more than 5000 visitors attend the fesitval every year. From the outset the festival established its base at the Winzer Krems, Sandgrube 13, and it now includes many other wonderful venues. All visiting artists share one thing in common: an exploration of their musical roots – whether traditional folk music, jazz, classical or avant-garde.
Since 1997 the festival co-organizer Radio Ö1, Austrian public broadcaster ORF’s radio station, has recorded every concert at the Winzer and aired many live shows. Some programm details will be online in february.


10.07. – 26.07.2020
(10., 11.07. – Spitz a.d.Donau / 11./12.-18.07. - Stift Göttweig, Musikwerkstatt / 18., 19.07. – Bio Weingut Geyerhof / 22.07.-26.07. - Winzern Krems, Sandgrube 13)

Music is more than sound. Music speaks.

The 24th Glatt&Verkehrt festival presents a resounding example of this motto with its 17 densely packed days full of song—not only performed in the world languages English, German, or Italian, but also Sardinian, Catalan, Sami, Persian, Azeri, Ladin, Grecanico, Viennese, and Swiss. Music-making will also be celebrated with instruments in their characteristic idioms when Morocco, Mali, and Madagascar join forces, South Tyrol and Apulia become eloquent neighbours on stage, or Iranian and European period musical instruments invent a new language together. The unique festival venues allow diverse formats—from performances with just a few musicians in an intimate atmosphere for 50 to concerts for 850 listeners, from the music workshop to shows via headphones and artificial head microphones, from an encounter with contemporary literature and music to a children’s afternoon.

Festival partner radio station Ö1 will once again accompany Glatt&Verkehrt with several live broadcasts.
