Summer time has been festival time on ARTE Concert for many years! Unfortunately, the 2020 summer festival season has been marked by a broad series of cancellations. Numerous festivals all over Europe have already announced that they cannot take place this summer. Nevertheless, ARTE Concert invites their users to a virtual festival summer and celebrates concerts of all genres. The digital music offer will even provide livestreams of the festivals that do take place – as a streaming event without public (as for instance the Moers Festival). For the cancelled festivals, ARTE Concert creates virtual versions of the festivals and proposes a best-of selections with concerts from past years.

Music lovers can look forward to virtual versions of various festivals such as Moers Festival, Hellfest, Melt!, Hurricane, Full Force, Splash!, Paléo Festival, La Route du Rock or Eurockéennes. More festivals and the specific line-ups will be communicated shortly.
