Opening Session

Thu, 16.06.22, 1:30 - 2:00 p.m. Schalampi, in front of the festival office
with: Tanja Pannier

The festival begins! All participants of the festival come together here for a common musical start.


Thu, 16.06.22 - Sun, 19.06.22 | all day | Talvogtei, rear side
Concept and realization comes from artist and artistic director of the festival Tanja Pannier

At the Talvogtei, a small path leads to the back of the building with seven stations and display boards, where festival visitors can enter a sound journey via QR codes: Noise and sound collages as well as some musical surprises refer to the seasons and make the own walk experienced with all senses. The sounds are inspired by the surroundings: a picturesque pond with a duck house, the fruit trees, the view into the nearby Black Forest. Benches and steps facing the water invite you to take a break from the festival rush.

To experience the Soundgarden, a smartphone and matching headphones are required.
