What if the Hippies were right? The world needs love, peace and the courage for creative dreaming more than ever – and music that ignites the divine spark that is joy. This midsummer night early music stars conjure up the spirit of Woodstock and go on the rampage on a lawn in Sanssouci releasing their longing for freedom and their zest for boundary experiences. So, if you’re going to Sanssouci, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair!
Our tip: bring your own duvet. Our catering is looking forward to serving you summery delicacies. Don’t forget to check out the photo bus for a hippie-style retro selfie!
