About this festival

"No other city has bathed so harmoniously, peacefully and unregulated in a cloud of music for a weekend", so the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" described the Bardentreffen after the 40th festival anniversary in 2015 and described it as "Europe's biggest musician gathering ".

The organizing project office in the cultural department of the city of Nuremberg annually expects about 200,000 lovers of current world music and popular songwriting on nine stages on a total of three festival days. And the whole thing with free admission!
