Potsdam is a city with a future and for the future. That’s a fact the Music Festival’s 11th Bicycle Concert is happy to prove. Everyone’s talking about the weather – we act. For the very first time our popular sporting, city history and music event pays special attention to the climate and sustainable use of resources. Electricity-free with an energy bonus for the arts – featuring a detour into valuable buildings and value-creating facilities.
Focussing on the future means putting the next generation centre stage. That is why apart from the two traditional tours for mobility junkies and energy artists (about 22km each) there is – for the very first time – a family tour that must be booked individually and offers both a dedicated program for young listeners as well as a later departure time to lower potential group stress. (10 km)
Join us and cycle through the green capital city, palaces, gardens and science parks. Check out indigenous instruments like the didgeridoo, the sound of the tenoroon or your very own voice. Discover future plastics and keep pedalling to mix an energy smoothie, watch some cinema or create music. Experience how decommissioned pieces have a second career as art or percussion and how Bach and Händel can make their sheet music appear as good as new in a jiffy.
Three tours and a comprehensive program for legs, heads and ears that won’t be outdated anytime soon.
