A Summer's Tale

July 22 to 25, 2021

Everyone is welcome at A Summer's Tale, from big to small. The summer festival offers fun, enjoyment and good humour for the whole family. Between live music, art, readings and film, the motto is: join in!

At this festival of a different kind, music meets nature, culture meets pleasure and big meets small. In contrast to traditional music festivals, the acts consist of musicians, comedians, artists, authors and much more. Headliners at Summer's Tale in the early years included bands such as Patti Smith, Noel Gallagher, Sigur Rós, Pixies, Tocotronic and Fury in the Slaughterhouse. The family-friendly festival is especially popular with parents who themselves have been attracted to the country's festival fields as teenagers. Today they travel to Luhmühlen with their offspring.

The festival A Summer's Tale takes a break in 2020 and returns in 2021.

The concept: Join in!

There is hardly anything at Summer's Tale that doesn't exist: Live out your creativity in DIY workshops, check your balance on the slackline or climb lofty heights in aerial yoga. Discuss current topics with like-minded people and enjoy culinary specialities you have created yourself. 

Review of 2019

In 2019, it was back to a colourful and colourful atmosphere: musical highlights included ZAZ, Maximo Park, Kate Nash and Wingenfelder. For children, karate, yoga and a song workshop were offered, while parents could exchange ideas on the topic of "Digital work in the countryside". They could also discover wines with all their senses, admire silkscreen artworks, go canoeing and explore the paths of meditation, and of course so much more!
