Citadel Music Festival
With the Citadel Music Festival, for 10 years now an address in the Berlin OpenAir season, everything started very small. Back in July 2005, the musical foundation was laid with the first concert by Blackmore's Night; the first test run, so to speak, for the Berlin festival, which is actually not a festival at all. The Citadel Music Festival is by no means a 1, 2 or 3 day festival, but rather a concert tour through the most beautiful months of the year (May - September). Organized by the company Trinity Music, which is one of the biggest players in the concert and event industry in Berlin with more than 600 events per year, the small "festival" quickly gained a lot of attention. Since then a lot has happened, with up to 25 concerts per season there is no comparable format in the capital. This major project would not have been possible without our great partner Schultheiss. The Citadel is also well received by artists. Punk icon Patti Smith graced us for the third time in 2013. Billy Idol, Jethro Tull, Queens Of The Stone Age, Silbermond and more were also happy to return. Singer Amy Lee of alternative rock band Evanescence wrote on Twitter "...this may be the most beautiful venue I've ever played!" The Citadel Music Festival doesn't limit itself to one genre of music. Why should it? We believe that everyone interested in music can and should be inspired by the unique atmosphere. Thus, all genres are represented at the festival, from poppy acts such as Silbermond or Ich und Ich to the heavier stuff like Marilyn Manson or Rage Against The Machine to seasoned legends like Bob Dylan or Chuck Berry. And there's more: Since the 2006 World Cup, the Football Family Festival has welcomed sports enthusiasts from young to old to the historic fortress every 2 years. Beyond the public viewing, the organizer is committed to a family-friendly supporting program. Every tournament a summer fairy tale. As part of the Citadel Music Festival, the "somewhat different" night market offers its visitors a market far removed from standard junk. Large & colorful market hustle and bustle in the castle courtyard, in the harbor the rock'n'roll market and suitable background music are just a few highlights of the special market place. Through our direct contacts to the most important political decision makers of Spandau and all relevant authorities for the realization of an open-air event, we look forward confidently to many more years of Citadel Music Festival and thank our loyal partners and of course all festival visitors.
