Fräiraim Festival

Philharmonie Luxembourg

In terms of square kilometres and inhabitants, Luxembourg is not among the European giants. By  comparison, however, the country’s cultural diversity is uniquely high. The music scene is no exception. Ever since the concert hall was founded, that diverse scene has been at home in the Philharmonie, and it is by no means limited to the series «Fräiraim», which features only artists from the greater Luxembourg region, both professional and amateur – in the best sense of the word – and has done so for the past 15 years! The Philharmonie celebrates its anniversary in June 2020 with a Fräiraim festival full of musical highlights on all the stages of the house and also on the Place de l’Europe. Whether figureheads such as the Luxembourgish songwriter Serge Tonnar or the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg conducted by Pierre Cao in a programme featuring only works by composers from Luxembourg or young artists performing across all genres from jazz to hip-hop and heavy metal to flamenco you may look forward to encounters that guarantee musical fireworks. And last but not least, there will be the traditional bands, wind orchestras and fanfares without which such a feast would be unthinkable. Can you imagine a better stage for a summit meeting of musical cultures than pluricultural Luxembourg?

Dear Musicians and Music Lovers!

This coming year, the Philharmonie celebrates its 15thbirthday and opens its doors and stages to all musicians in Luxembourg for an entire weekend. No matter which genre or level, playing solo or as a group – everyone is welcome! Apply now for your spot at the Fräiraim Festival in June 2020.

For a really successful birthday party, we hope to assemble a line-up which is as colourful and unlimited or wide ranging or boundary free as the music and cultural scene in Luxembourg itself: with garage bands and yodelling groups, marching bands and flamenco dancers, pianists and singers, hip-hoppers and didgeridoo players, string quartets and metal bands, DJs and singer-songwriters – everything is possible!

Is your project missing from this list? Would you like to join the party? Let us know, and submit your application by the end of January!

Please apply by completing this form with a short description of your project and use this opportunity to make contact; both backstage with other musicians and on stage with the Luxembourg audience!

We can’t wait to hear from you!
