Live concerts under the open sky, summer cuisine and cultural enjoyment in the heart of the city: From the 5th to the 14th The LEIPZIGER MARKT MUSIK will take place in August. With its musical range, the program once again combines local color and internationality, world-famous hits and new tones, veterans and newcomers this summer. With bands and ensembles of all genres, orchestras and great voices, the best entertainment is guaranteed for ten days against the beautiful backdrop of the Old Town Hall.


The festival provides a varied insight into the diversity of the Leipzig music scene right with the opening on the 5th. August. Then 5 p.m. Deguy will bring her special mixture of soul, funk, pop and indie to the stage. The audience will experience acoustic rock with classic instruments from 8 p.m. at “Stilbruch”. With the student wind orchestra Blaswerk Leipzig (6. August, 8 p.m.) and the big band of the Leipzig Music School (12. August, 8 p.m.), the festival is looking forward to two Leipzig ensembles with talented young musicians. The Leipzig newcomers Annalea Hummel, Leila El Kasmi and Leon Daishin Spannan (10. August, 5 p.m.) as well as Abigail Nova Campos and Rona Stoica (13. August, 5 p.m.) promised. Years of experience on Leipzig’s stages – and often beyond – bring the Lose Skiffle Community Leipzig-Mitte (7. August, 5 p.m.), Momentum with Special Guest Esthie Kiel (7. August, 8 p.m.), Takayo (9. August, 5 p.m.), Hot Club d’Allemagne (12. August, 5 p.m.) and the Johann Strauss Choir Leipzig (14. August, 5 p.m.).

To celebrate: Anniversary show “25 Years Krystallpalast Varieté”


The artistic direction of the festival is at the Krystallpalast Varieté Leipzig and Wednesday evening (10. August, 8 p.m.) is all about the anniversary “25 years of Krystallpalast Varieté”. As the only variety theater in East Germany that plays all year round, the Krystallpalast Varieté shows modern concept variety in its own productions of several months. The ensembles are put together for each production of top-class, often award-winning artists, musicians, dancers and modern comedians. The anniversary show at the LEIPZIGER MARKT MUSIK makes this impressively tangible and combines artistry – Noah Chorny (Pole), Mencho Sosa (football juggling), Emir Buhari (Cyr Wheel) and the Typhon Crew (Breakdance) – with the vocal power of Elena Lorenzon, Laura Liebeskind and Jasmin Graf.


To sing along: Tributes to musical legends


The festival program also gathers great voices and world-famous hits. These include The Rubettes, which achieved international success in 1974 with “Sugar Baby Love” and brought the sound of the 70s to LEIPZIGER MARKT MUSIC (8. August, 8 p.m.). With “A Tribute to Johnny Cash” “The Cashbags” revive the American country legend (8. August, 5 p.m.). Ground Control inspires from “Ziggy Stardust” to “Heroes” with the songs of David Bowie (9. August, 8 pm), starfuckers rock with “A Tribute to The Rolling Stones” (11. August, 8 pm) and Piano Man brings “The Songs of Billy Joel” to the stage of LEIPZIGER MARKT MUSIK. At the sounding conclusion, the festival welcomes on the 14th. August 8 p.m. the “3 high leagues”: Dirk Michaelis, Dirk Zöllner and André Herzberg, three great songwriters who together develop a unique dynamic.


“We are pleased that we can invite you to LEIPZIGER MARKT MUSIK and thus to ten days of cultural enjoyment in the heart of the city – and for the first time again without access restrictions,” says Dirk Deumeland, authorized signatory of FAIRNET, organizer of LEIPZIGER MARKT MUSIK.
