Let the show begin – present your act live on the IKF stages!

For 32 years now, the culture and events scene has been meeting each year at the Internationale Kulturbörse Freiburg – to stay informed, to share ideas, to network, and above all else: to discover new artists!

While some 400 exhibitors present the latest developments in the culture and event industry in the exhibition halls, as an artist you have five live stages at your disposal where you can attract interest in your artistic projects with short performances in front of an audience of about 5,000 trade visitors.

The programme is wide-ranging – and is divided into three fields:

  • Performing Arts (theatre, acrobatics, variety, storytelling, cirque nouveau, cabaret, comedy, puppet theatre, pantomime, dance, media art...)
  • Music (world music, jazz, a cappella, singer-songwriter, pop, rock…)
  • Street Theatre (performances and walk acts)

Give it a go – the concept has proven its worth!
