This year, the series of talks “Encore! – Dialogue with Artists” will present nine artists speaking about themselves and their views in a 30 minute informal talk. This includes German singer-songwriters such as “Deutsch-Rocker”, Wolf Maahn, Bavarian musical cabaret artist and actor, Hannes Ringlstetter, and bitterly angry song poet of the next singer songwriter generation, Falk. If you want to dream yourself to far places on this year’s topical islands, talk rounds will take you to Cyprus with Monsieur Doumani, to the Faeroe Islands with Eivør, to Gotland with Gunnfjauns Kapell or to Formentera with Antena Libre. On Sunday morning, you may experience Hungarian Roma group, Romengo, and the diverse series will be rounded off with the special project Langtunes feat. The Tigris Dreamers, uniting refugees living in Nuremberg for a special Bardentreffen programme, both on and behind the stage. The talks will be held in the International House (Heilig-Geist-Saal) and in the Burgtheater.
