The springfestival 2024 will once again transform Graz into a centre for electronic art and music.
A highlight of the festival will be the opening concert by Hamburg techno marching band MEUTE. Their performance promises to be a unique experience in the magnificent setting of the casemates on Graz’s Schloßberg.
In addition to the musical performances, this year’s festival will place a special focus on the topic of wellbeing. Under the motto “Be happy: strategies for physical and mental health”, various activities will be offered, including movement, mindfulness and meditation, music and dance.
In the Lendgarten, the “Body&Mind Oasis” will be a place for rest and relaxation, there will be various yoga workshops and ice bathing will provide a special kind of refreshment.
Stefan Sagmeister, the two-time Grammy winner and multi-award-winning designer and creative thinker, will share his knowledge and experience on the subject of happiness as part of the Electronic Lessons. In his lecture “now is better!”, he will share personal anecdotes and insights on the topics of happiness and satisfaction and show how design can also influence well-being.
Günther Krabbenhöft will read from his new book “Just be you!”. His fame as a stylish “hipster grandpa” and his positive charisma make him an inspiring speaker on topics relating to joie de vivre, self-expression and old age.
The spring city musictour is the first time that a mobile DJ line will be playing in a different public space every day with free admission. Live concerts, live electronic performances, DJ sets, visual art.
