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 International Summer Festival will once again transform the Kampnagel site into a great art spectacle this year. The festival at the most beautiful time of summer runs from August 10 to August 28, 2022 and will serve up one of the biggest programs in recent years!
Hollywood director Gus van Sant, current Grammy winner Aaroj Aftab, The German Museum of Black Entertainment and Black Music and a total of more than 200 artists from all over the world will be taking part. Visitors can expect a multifaceted exploration of the future of performance art! The artists from dance, theater, music and many other fields will move around the six stages and the entire Kampnagel grounds, which also include the AvantGarten with its particularly beautiful linden trees.
On each festival evening, the garden on the Osterbek Canal will become a cultural oasis with free concerts and performances, drinks and food offerings. The festival also extends into downtown Hamburg with a temporary outdoor stage in the vacant Karstadt Sport department store and cooperates with the Elbphilharmonie for a series of concerts.
