Cobblestone spectacle turns Kremsmünster into a stage for street artists

Just last weekend, more than 100 groups of artists at 40 venues in downtown Linz transformed the state capital into a colorful world of happiness for three days. For the 34th time, Linz hosted the cobblestone spectacle in the name of art, acrobatic fascination and magical magic.

But what a large state capital can also do in a much smaller market town: On Saturday, August 6, from 3 p.m., the 1st cobblestone spectacle will take place in Kremsmünster under the motto “Street art meets lust for life” – all with free admission in several places at the same time .

“Of course we adjusted the dimensions in relation to Linz,” says Mayor Gerhard Obernberger, “but we have put together a fine program.” If the weather is good, he hopes for around 5,000 guests in the monastery. The Kremsmünster brand is strengthened by this festival. With appropriate encouragement, the plaster spectacle should take place regularly, possibly alternating with the market festival.

Music show in the evening

At the premiere, from 3 to 8 p.m. during the day, a total of 15 different artists will enchant the audience on a total of three stages – in front of the town hall, on the Salomonwiese and on the market square in front of the fountain. The program ranges from comedy and clowning, juggling, figure and object theater to acrobatics, a fire show and rope artistry to dance and music. The audience can look forward to outstanding artistic performances by professionals from Italy, France, Germany, Austria and talents from the region. In addition to the three show stages, the finest pop and rock music is offered on the main stage on the town hall square. Among others, Sergeant Steel and Andie Gabauer guarantee a great atmosphere until late in the evening. The program on the main stage starts at 6.30 p.m. From 8:45 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., a “Best of” of the street art performances will also be offered here.

Delicacies from Kremsmünster restaurateurs round off the cobblestone spectacle and are intended to make it a culinary highlight for visitors.

Hat money for the artists

“It is very important to us to offer artists a large platform. We want to make art and culture accessible to a wide audience,” emphasizes Mayor Obernberger.

Admission to this unique event is free, but the artists are of course happy about voluntary donations. In the event of bad weather, the cobblestone spectacle will be postponed to Saturday, August 13th.
