The Honky Tonk Festival

The Honky Tonk® Festival is one of Leipzig's institutional events. Music makers present their diverse performances on Leipzig stages every year in March.

The festival's highlight is life music. In addition to well-known artists, there are also plenty of newcomers to discover. From electro-art, jazz and pop to punk and hard-core – this musical event has something for everyone!
