The annual Munich Theatron Festival is known as the longest lasting of the world.During the summer months the amphitheatre with its stage on the shore of the Olympic Lake changes into one of Munich’s most atmospheric places. During the Summer Games 1972 the Theatron had already been the location of the cultural support programme with various events in music, dance and theatre.
Every year in the summertime on every evening of the festival numerous national and international acts play Open-Air-Concerts for free. For some bands - who should sell out the Olympic Hall only a couple of years later – the Theatron was a big steppingstone for their later career like for the Hannover hard-rockers of Scorpions or Munich’s own Sportfreunde Stiller.
Rock and pop, hip hop, chanson or classical music, alternative music and internationally renowned bands: the longest music festival in the world, the 24-day-long summer festival attract thousands of lovers of all kinds of music to the Theatron at the lake of the Olympic Centre. The “doors” open and the first concert of the night usually begins every evening at 7pm, with the second one beginning some two hours later.
The line-up for this year’s Theatron Festival hasn’t been announced so far, but we know that the festival’s 2016 instalment is set to begin on Thursday, July 28 until Sunday, August 21, 2016. As soon as the line-up is announced, we’ll update this post with it. But even without knowing who’s playing, you can be sure you’ll have a pleasant evening at one of Munich’s most loved open-air venues.
