Nodes, shoots and roots: The seventh edition of the donaufestival brings the festival’s content-related construction plan into the fore and makes it its motto. For us, it’s definitely one of the best festivals in Europe.
Depicting and tapping artistic networks, but also connecting different artistic media, forming intellectual cross-references has been the central concern of the donaufestival since its inception.
