The folk festival begins on August 25 at Bürgerpark – again not in tents, but in the open air. In addition to regular guests, there are also some new works.

At the moment, practically all Corona restrictions have been lifted, even in major events. Non-vaccinated visitors can also participate, there are no longer distance rules and masks are no longer mandatory. But what will it be like in late summer? Bate Wiedemann and its organizing team from Braunschweiger Al Khaimah Cultural Association Play it safe. Tents remain in the warehouse, and for the third consecutive season open-air folk music, festival performances and nightclubs are held under the theme “Culture in the Park” instead of “Culture in the Tent”.

“In tents, they get comfortably tight at the entrance or at the tables. We thought about it for a long time, but then decided that safety came first. We put everyone’s lightness of spirit above the tent roofs, so to speak,” says Wiedemann. Like this Good weather in late summer From past years it has played a role. In fact, not a single guest performance has been canceled so far, a little shuffled, says Wiedemann.

Patrick Salmin is there for the first time

Instead of 1,300 or 800 places in the two tents, there is only one in “Kultur im Park”. 550 places. A nice, relaxed vibe is more important than mass, says Wiedemann. With these considerations, however, Corona assistance programs such as “re-culture“Valuable,” adds employee Amelie Gabel, who played a key role in coordinating the festival programme. The promotion of digitization and Corona protection measures, as well as the partial assumption of the artist’s fees, would have supported the cultural tent association well.
