Get to know us
The Ludwigsburg Festival is a festival that has existed for 90 years. For a long time it was a festival solely for classical music and presented classical concerts and opera productions with its own orchestra and famous guests. Since its founding, there have been several artistic directors responsible for the overall artistic direction. Over the years, the classical focus has been broadened so that other genres and formats have also become part of the programme. Since the 2019/20 season, the current artistic director Jochen Sandig has been shaping the Schlossfestspiele and has also officially elevated it to the socio-political level as a »festival of the arts, democracy and sustainability«. As a result, not only classical concerts and modern dance performances are on the schedule, but also interdisciplinary and intercultural events as well as discursive and participatory formats - in other words: exchange is the focus and takes place in talks, lectures and open, artistic workshops.
