About the KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen

The KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen is an outstanding festival with music-theatre, performances, dance, concerts and installations. Originally from May 15 to June 1 2020, now moved to autumn 2020, numerous formats – most of them specially developed for the KunstFestSpiele – can be seen.

Director Ingo Metzmacher has also put together a unique programme for the 11th edition of the popular festival, which sets new artistic accents, overcomes genre boundaries and connects artists and audiences.

The central festival venues – the Galerie and Orangerie, the Großer Garten, the Arne Jacobsen Foyer – are located in the magnificent setting of the Herrenhausen Gardens. In 2020, venues outside the gardens carry the festival into the heart of the city of Hannover, including the Kuppelsaal of HCC or the Lutherkirche. In the central festival tent of the KunstFestSpiele, the artists, employees and the audience meet in a relaxed atmosphere.

The highlight of the 2020 festival is the laser and sound installation Fountain Scan by Robert Henke. For its 300th anniversary the musician, laser artist and programmer is playing at the fountain with a spectacular sound and laser installation.
