Ticket sales are ongoing!

Many of you have been eagerly anticipating updates about this year’s programme. Don’t worry – we’re determined to keep you in the loop!

Stay tuned, as more details about the 2024 programme will be shared right here in the coming days.

As you might already know, this year’s special guest country is Germany. We’re also thrilled to announce that Scottish dancing will be the featured join-in dance style, while the 43rd EBU Euroradio Folk Festival is set to bring a wealth of performers to our stages.

All in all, we’ll be hosting talent from over 30 countries.

Naturally, we’ll be celebrating the winner of the prestigious German World Music Prize RUTH.

As you can see, the excitement is mounting!

Tickets go on sale on 1 February 2024 at TixforGigs, as well as in the tourist information centres in Rudolstadt, Saalfeld and Bad Blankenburg, and at the service centres of public transport operator KomBus.

A note for all those planning to drive to the festival. Parking spaces for cars, motorhomes and so on can only be booked online in conjunction with combo tickets on TixforGigs. Please note that parking must be arranged in advance and can’t be organized upon arrival. This will enable us to better manage the total number of incoming vehicles. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We look forward to welcoming you once again!


As almost always late minute changes in the festival programme are inevitable. Not many, fortunately, but of course we want to pass it on:

* The Ukrainian US Orchestra is not allowed to travel and will be replaced by the Trio HrayBery (see Program > Concert).

* Unfortunately, Faun’s Spanish friend Efrén López is ill and cannot come to Germany.

* In the street music, Landor from Austria and – particularly disappointing because of the country focus – the Cuban group Organo El Mulato Oriental have canceled. Some of the free slots will be played by New York artist Seth Faergolzia (see "Street Music"), others by third performances of bands that are already in Rudolstadt.
