The annual Asphalt Festival brings art to the streets and to the people. Also known as Düsseldorf’s “Summer Festival of the Arts”, Asphalt Festival celebrates the best of theatre, dance, music, literature, art and performance each year by hosting a series of events throughout the city.

This year’s festival will see 46 events, including six world premieres, taking place across 19 days and nights – a mixture of readings, performances, concerts and offers for families by local artists in indoor and outdoor venues.

Düsseldorf’s Summer Festival of the Arts

The festival’s cross-border and cross-disciplinary element is a core part of its DNA, as Asphalt Festival aims to offer sufficient space and attention for sensual, surprising and new art experiences.

The idea behind the festival is linked to the use of different venues, which are located in the centre of Düsseldorf this year and include the 34OST art and cultural centre, Seebühne am Schwanenspiegel and the D’haus Central. Usually, each venue has been carefully paired with every performance, show or dance in order to see how the visual art and the location enrich the overall atmosphere.
