Tollwood Summerfestival 2014
»Paths come about by people walking them« Franz Kafka
Daring to try something new: Joining forces to make a better future – that’s what Tollwood stands for, and that’s why we find the political demand: »As nature made them – let the animals be themselves« at the core of the 2014 Summer Festival. This is a petition campaign against industrial intensive livestock farming, which was signed by almost 67.000 people at the 2013 Winter Festival and is being continued. Tollwood and the German Animal Protective Society will deliver all the signatures to the German Federal Ministry of Agriculture. The goal is a change in the animal protective legislation and with it the demand: Stop this cruel abuse, no mutilation of animals, and adapt the animal maintenance system to the nature of the animals.
The events package for the summer is extensive: with stars from the international music scene ranging from John Fogerty to Natalie Cole and Sergio Mendes to Chris de Burgh in the music arena, with the best rock bands from Munich, the region and the whole world, with performances and walk acts, with traditional and rebellious shows at the Bavarian Music-Makers’ Get-Together with Otto Göttler, with the legendary dance bar, an ark as adventure playground for children and – of course – the paradise for strollers, the »Market of Ideas« with an Ayurveda Oasis, the »Delhi Haat« Indian tent and international arts and crafts. More than 50 food stands serving tasty delicacies from all over the world – needless to say – in bio quality.
