Our large white theater tent is located on Burgplatz, directly on the Rhine. It is the heart of the festival. Dance, new circus, theater and music from all over the world take place here in front of 900 visitors; this is where the lifeblood of the festival pulsates. The entire 70-strong festival team works from here. Technicians and hands, riggers, lighting and sound technicians. Ticketing, production, the canteen crew with a large number of Düsseldorf volunteers. The tent is a meeting place for the audience, artists and staff. Everyone involved in the festival lives and works here for six weeks in a specially built container village. Our red retro bar is also our foyer, where the audience and sponsors meet for a drink before and after the performances.
In addition to the large international stage in the Theaterzelt, the Düsseldorf Festival also extends far into the city every year, filling smaller spaces with music, some of which are inaccessible to the cultural scene.
