Spring of culture - spring of music
Full throttle into spring
Welcoming spring. With music. And cabaret. Atmospheric, up to date, demanding, challenging, expressive, lively. To the warm season. To the new beginning.
Merano Cabaret Days
A curious look at the German-speaking cabaret scene. Since 2019. Cabaret, satire, poetry slam. With cabaret-like heavyweights from Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Entertaining, unvarnished, lively, up-to-date, self-ironic, time-critical, bitterly evil, intelligent, eloquent and stimulating. Every year in March.
Tyrolean spring of culture
Genuine old & new folk music. A musical crossover with elements of good old folk music. And modern styles of contemporary music. A return to homeland and old values in a highly compatible blend of contemporary world music.From talented, adventurous bands and Tyrolean brass bands. Every year in April.

Südtirol Jazzfestival Alto Adige
Jazz at dizzying musical heights. In all parts of South Tyrol and beyond. The landscape becomes the stage. And jazz becomes a part of the landscape.
