For over two decades, the cultural open air summer in Linz starts with the LINZFEST, which has become a successful cultural festival offering music, literature, dance, cabaret and children’s programme. It is organized by the Department of Culture of the City of Linz. This festival, which takes place in the Danube Park between Lentos Art Museum and Brucknerhaus, offers an extensive programme for a broad audience with free admission. Cooperation projects with other cultural institutions of Linz and representatives of the independent art scene are an important element of the programme.
The 500th anniversary of the provincial capital of Linz was the starting point of the LINZFEST, which has become a permanent feature of the cultural life in Linz. The festival is a meeting point for all generations and nations on and in front of the stage, offering a lively and diverse programme and a unique atmosphere in the beautiful surroundings of the Danube Park.
