48h Wilhelmsburg

48h festival feeling, music and culture

Music from the Elbe islands: Every year the Wilhelmsburg district is transformed into a festival stage. The festival "48h Wilhelmsburg" reflects the musical diversity of the colourful neighbourhood. A festival for all the senses.

48h long music, 48h long festival feeling, 48h long Wilhelmsburg! For two days, bands and solo artists from Wilhemlsburg transform the Elbe island into a colourful and lively district festival.

The Neighbourhood Festival

The festival "48h Wilhelmsburg" draws a musical picture of the districts Wilhelmsburg and Veddel. Which bands are allowed to perform is not determined by their international fame, but by their relationship to the Elbe islands. The artists grew up, live or work in the districts.  For two days, they transform the city's studios, balconies, living rooms and other everyday spaces into a festival stage.

Music for All

Everyone is welcome at "48h Wilhelmsburg". For this reason admission is free of charge. If you still want to support the festival financially, you can buy a support ribbon. The proceeds flow directly into the festival.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Wilhelmsburg & Veddel

The Elbe Island of Wilhelmsburg is embedded between the southern and northern Elbe. It impresses visitors with a mixture of industrial charm and bustling life with multicultural flair. With its historic buildings, cafés and shops, the Wilhelmsburg Reiherstieg area is especially popular. It is even called "Little Berlin" due to its transformation in recent years. And then there is the neighbouring island of Veddel, which also has much to offer.
