World • Music • Festival
Germany's largest world music festival free of charge.
The ‘Bardentreffen 2016’ will take place as planned. The Police estimate that there has been an abstract danger in the whole territory for a few years now but there isn’t a tangible indication of danger for the upcoming events in Nuremberg. Nonetheless, the city and the police will increase the security measures that would have been in place anyway for upcoming events. The city for instance will increase private security measures and the presence of police officers, both in uniform and in civilian clothing will also be strengthened. Sporadic searches of persons and the bags will also take place. The City and the police force ask all visitor of the events for their understanding concerning the increased security measures. Thank you.
In its 41st edition, Bardentreffen focuses on a variety of music from islands around the globe. You can read more details about this year's theme here.
