According to the motto of this year "Crossing Borders" bands from USA, Germany, Japan, France, England, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, Poland, Austria, Hungaria, Scotland, Italy and Canada will join the festival.
A special thing will be the big bands:
After the Market Square program there will be a "Night Festival" at the "Theater Am Schloss" offering special concerts and jam sessions. Besides there will be a high grade photo exhibit at the Cafe Klausberger that will already start on 16 May.
"Culture includes not only culture and arts, but also the way of life and system of values. In this sense culture becomes the major power for intellectual renewal and human perfection." (European Council Report on European Cultural Policy)
