International Summerfestival

Cultural spectacle at Kampnagel

Pop meets avant-garde at the International Summer Festival at Kampnagel. Artists* from all over the world bring theatre, dance, performances, concerts and parties to the stages of the former crane factory with Hamburg's most beautiful temporary beer garden.

The organizers of the summer festival at Kampnagel have put together anything but a "virus narrow-gauge version" - and they are proud of it. "Togetherness" is the motto of the summer festival for 2021, and it is supposed to stand for the offer to come together again and to see, hear and experience art together.

Songs for the way back on stage

The act will be taken up by the Canadian singer Feist with a program full of new songs, written last year, in which she reflected on how it can be possible to go back to the stage. In addition, over the month of August there will be plays (from a work in Swiss German dialect to a rediscovery of Buddenbrooks in the rooms of Uebel & Gefährlich), dance performances, perfomances and art actions.

Numerous additional venues

The "Ghosts of Consumerism" can be found in the former Kaufhof building in the city center. In this combination of performance and walking tour with headphones, participants learn more about Hamburg's history and the future of inner cities. In addition to the former department store, there are many other outdoor venues: In addition to the Elbphilharmonie, where Rufus Wainwright performs among others, these include the square around the Bismarck Monument on St. Pauli, house facades that become performance venues for dance short films with "A Wall is a Screen," and various public places in Hamburg that can be visited with audio guides, for example, and seen with completely new eyes. In addition, there is the Avant-Garden, which the Kampnagel team also calls "Hamburg's most beautiful art leisure park." There is a daily program on several stages, on weekends also especially for children, and food from Peacetanbul for refreshment.
