Week of Surprise | 11.-16.10.2021

One of the big annual Stadtgarten highlights, the "Night of Surprise", will take place this year not as a long night of experimental music, but as a six-day festival from October 11 - 16, 2021 at Stadtgarten, Klub JAKI, Christuskirche and Galerie Martina Kaiser.

At the "Week of Surprise", the audience_ will be treated to a week full of musical surprises, diversions, oases and discoveries. The program of this interim format focuses on niches of the European musical landscape and projects of some darlings of the last festival editions, local projects and new collaborations in more concert-like formats.

Among others, Peter Evans & Elias Stemeseder, Sofia Jernberg & Alexander Hawkins, Julien Desprez' Abacaxi, Now My Life is Sweet Like Cinnamon, "Occam Ocean - Delta X" by Eliane Radigue (played by Zinc & Copper), Of Cabbages and Kings, the installation "Creating Reality" (Siegfried Koepf & Bernd Härpfer), Fred Frith & Lotte Anker in a meeting with local improvisers, DJ Marcelle, Kampire, Judith Haman "Shaking Studies" / "Music for Cello and Humming" and many more.
