The next Rudolstadt Festival is sure to come ...

With new courage we will be heading to prepare next summer’s festival! We owe this not least to the marvellous response from our audience, and would wholeheartedly like to say thank you for the amazing willingness to donate and your deep attachment, for all those touching words of encouragement and understanding!

The whole cultural sector is still suffering from tremendously difficult circumstances. It is for this reason that we like to look ahead trying to keep our confidence. We are wildly determined to set up a fantastic 30th edition. It is our special pleasure to announce some of the artists who have already confirmed to perform at Rudolstadt Festival 2021:

A Filetta (FRA), Andreas Gabriels Verändler (SUI), Brushy One String (JAM), Cimarrón (COL), Felix Shinder & Dengi Vpered (UKR), Imár (SCO), Lakha Khan (IND), Les Ogres de Barback (FRA), Light in Babylon (ISR), Rasga Rasga (DEU), Rufus Wainwright (USA), Santrofi (GHA), Trad.Attack! (EST), Warsaw Sentimental Orchestra (POL), and also Maria Farantouri (GRE) for her concert with Thuringian Symphony Orchestra Saalfeld-Rudolstadt.

Most bands for EBU Folk Festival are confirmed as well. Our RUTH award winner HUMBA will prepare even more of its special Cologne humour, and Ceilidh group Kreuz & Quer will have a belated birthday party for their 40th anniversary.

The 30th festival is scheduled for 1 – 4 July 2021.


Presale will start on 12 December.
