On the first weekend in August, the air in Bremen-Vegesack tastes of wind, ocean and life at sea! Musicians from the international maritime music scene will make sure of that at the "Festival Maritim". More than 30 bands from England, Scotland, France and the Netherlands, among others, are coming to Bremen to celebrate this occasion! Here they will present their songs about the sea.

This extraordinary open-air spectacle attracts around 120,000 visitors to the north of Bremen every year and has become one of the most important events of its kind in the world. The music ranges from Irish and Scottish rock to Celtic folk and tender ballads. The festival is played on a total of ten open-air stages along the Weser. In addition, street musicians will take over the pedestrian zone, streets and cafés in the city centre. Sustainability is also in focus this year: you won't find plastic cups here, but environmentally friendly alternatives.

More than Musical Programme

In addition to the musical programme, art, culinary delights and culture are also an integral part of the festival. Children can also let off steam in Pirate Children's Land. On top of that, various culinary delights await the visitors.

A brochure shows you clearly what is happening when and where at the event on the first weekend in August. It is available in shops, hotels, cultural institutions and restaurants in Vegesack or can be downloaded directly.
