Since the first Breminale in 1987 – which took place on the market square in the city centre – the festival has grown remarkably. With its combination of great music and cultural activities, it has grown to be one of highlights of Bremen’s cultural scene. Now, as many as 220,000 visitors come to enjoy the Breminale every year.
Over 100 Bands on various stages
The music programme is multi-facted. Numerous bands play on various stages. The festival grounds stretch out for nearly a kilometre along the Osterdeich and the lawn behind the Kunsthalle. The music programme has fantastic talent and the cultural programme held on the lawn invites you to linger, enjoy, and relax. With its mix of music, theatre, film, and comedy, as well as plenty of hands-on activities for kids, everyone, young and old, has a great time at the Breminale.
Throughout the festival grounds, in between the tents with their throbbing music and dancing crowds, are food stands with delicious international specialities. Find a quieter place along the dike to kick-back, relax and enjoy your treat. Together with art and music, there is special cuisine in the “Eco Village”, and every year on Sunday during the Breminale a “Dike Banquet” is held. Over 250 people share a table and enjoy a three-course meal of regional bio produce.
