“Once again, festival directors Christiane Oxenfort and Andreas Dahmen and their team have succeeded in organising a festival that inspires and makes you think.”

Dr. Stephan Keller, Lord Mayor City of Düsseldorf (2023)

“The two festival directors, Christiane Oxenfort and Andreas Dahmen, demonstrated a seismographic feel for forward-looking art forms early on, which we also support as a state. With new circus and urban dance, they have been able to score points with audiences year after year and make the festival an increasingly established fixture in North Rhine-Westphalia.”

Ina Brandes, Minister for Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (2023)

“As an annual event, the Düsseldorf Festival! not only attracts local artists and cultural professionals,
but also presents international talent in the fields of theater, music, dance and visual arts.
The festival offers a diverse platform for innovative and contemporary art forms that enrich the city’s cultural landscape.”

Clara Gerlach, Mayor City of Düsseldorf (2023)

The 33rd edition of the Düsseldorf Festival! is behind us.

In 2023, the festival was characterised above all by strong partnerships. With renewed energy, we were able to present old acquaintances as well as exciting new discoveries in the theatre tent. The past few years have shown that we can overcome crises if we stick together. The great solidarity between artists, partners and audiences has strengthened us all. Now we have been able to get going again and do what is so close to our hearts: Celebrating theatre, dance, music and new circus, sharing and celebrating with you. We can look back on a wonderful time.
