2023-02-01 | Dresden Music Festival 2023

The annual Dresden Music Festival will take place for the 46th time this year from May 18 to June 18. "BLACKANDWHITE" is the motto of Dresden Music Festival 2023 because it is dedicated to the areas of tension in music and society. Between war and peace, pandemic and regained freedom, Jan Vogler and his team in Dresden have put together a diverse program of 63 events at 22 venues.
