After two years of pandemic it’s about to happen again: finally the Internationale Straßenmusikfestival Ludwigsburg will be taking place again at the »Blooming Baroque« garden show in Ludwigsburg. Every day from 6 to 11 pm over the Whitsun weekend live performances can be seen on twelve stages located all over the grounds around the Residence, from the large main stage in front of the palace to the atmospheric Pavilion at the centre of the park, and even extending into the city centres of Ludwigsburg and Stuttgart. Forty musicians and bands from all over the world play music from all genres: singer/songwriters, rock/pop, Latin, hip-hop and country and western. And on the Friday they’ll be joined by the Rothko String Quartet, who will be giving another concert at the Ludwigsburg Festival on the Saturday. Having proved highly popular last year, there’ll be a public vote on which acts will appear at the closing concert. Anybody can choose their favourites, either by using the voting cards provided at the venues or by voting online on the festival website.
