Topical Focus of the 46th Nuremberg Bardentreffen: “Stolen Sounds?”
This year’s 46th Nuremberg Bardentreffen has the heading ”Stolen Sounds?” and will be held between 21 and 23 July 2023 (one week before the start of the Bavarian summer vacations). With around 90 concerts on eight stages in the picturesque Old Town, the festival will, as usual, present current trends in World Music and Global Pop. In addition to over 400 international artists performing in the official programme, we expect many singer-songwriters to showcase their skills on the streets and in the city’s squares.
With this year’s heading the festival wants to pick up the current discussion about cultural appropriation and music appreciation.
