In the page's words:

The Düsseldorf Festival is a colorful playground, it invites you to approach art in a playful way. It is an open place for newcomers and specialists alike. Above all, however, it is a place for the enjoyment of sensuality and the satisfaction of curiosity.

Düsseldorf Festival, the festival for performing arts in the fields of theater, music, new circus and dance. The wide-ranging program is predominantly dedicated to cross-disciplinary and cross-stylistic arts. Originating in the early 1990s as the "Altstadtherbst Kulturfestival", the festival saw itself as a counter-design to the classic sectional operation of public houses and the classical concert business in the city. The festival center on Burgplatz, the large theater tent, still hosts top-class international programs that radiate far into the region. The New Circus in particular has become a permanent fixture in the program and is symptomatic of the artistic approach of the festival organizers. Early on, artistic directors Christiane Oxenfort and Andreas Dahmen engaged outstanding Nouveau Cirque companies from France, Canada, Australia, Sweden and Switzerland, at a time when this art form was still hardly noticed in Germany. They were joined by modern dance theater, major musical theater productions and global pop concerts in collaboration with WDR Cosmo.

In the meantime, the festival has made a name for itself internationally and nationally, also through its numerous co-productions. Performing companies and musicians include artists such as Akram Khan, Hofesh Shechter, Anne Christine de Mey, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, José Montalveau & Dominique Hervieu, Eun-Me Ahn, Rocio Molina, Compagnie 111, Martin Zimmermann & Dimitri De Perrot, Circa, Circus Cirkör, Les 7 doigts de la main, Cirque Eloize, Compagnie XY, Mourad Merzouki (Cie. Cage) Anthony Egea and Kader Attou and musicians such as Amp Fiddler, Tony Allen, Rokia Traore, Cory Henry or Dhafer Yussef.

In addition to the large international stage in the theater tent, the Düsseldorf Festival annually streams far into the city and occupies smaller spaces with music, some of which are not accessible to the cultural establishment. Exciting concert formats on the borderline between early music, classical music, jazz and pop music dominate here. Outstanding musicians from Germany and abroad play here far from the usual genres and convey new listening experiences. Particular mention should be made here of the intensive cooperation with the innovative festival PODIUM Esslingen.
