Freundeskreis (Friends)

The Friends have supported the Ludwigsburg Festival for 27 years. The members also support the »Baden-Württemberg International Festival« and, thus, the endeavour to bring together diverse cultural and artistic positions. 

The Friends contribute to securing and realising the extraordinary and groundbreaking festival programme through its idealistic and financial commitment. This commitment enables the popular concert series »Frei Luft Musik« to be held every Friday from May to July on the market square - free of charge for all visitors. Another focus of the circle of friends is to give young people access to art and music.

Convinced of the creative power of the arts, the Friends feel connected to the Ludwigsburg Festival and its programme. Members enjoy a unique proximity to the festival, receive priority when purchasing tickets, receive personal programme presentations and meet festival participants. As ambassadors and multipliers, the Friends bring their enthusiasm for the arts, people and encounters to the centre of society.
