06 – 11 November 2018

2018 will mark the 28th anniversary of euro-scene Leipzig. The motto for this year's festval, which is concentrated on music in theatre and dance, is »Stage – Sound – World«. Here, many different approaches to music, such as explorations of noise, text, live music, sound and even style, take to the stage, resulting in atmospheric performances. The festival will feature around 12 shows, with 25 performances by artists from 10 different countires, held at 8 different venues. From spoken and dance theatre to performances to entertainment for children, a colourful variety is guaranteed. Some performances will even be awarded prizes in Germany. The guest performances are supplemented by supporting programmes. The patronage is to be taken over by Burkhard Jung, the Mayor of Leipzig.

The festival's programme will be announced at the beginning of July 2018. The sale of tickets will begin on 29 September 2018.
