Review: Summer Festival 2021

“I want to because I can, which I have to. #NoDegreeFurther!”

Smaller. Different. Special. Under the motto “I want, because I can, what I have to. #KeinGradWeiter!” the summer festival took place in a much smaller version and with comprehensive Corona protection measures from 1 July to 22 August in the Olympiapark after a year’s break from Corona. It was smaller, different, but special and with 53 festival days the longest festival in Tollwood history so far.

The entire festival period was marked by weather extremes, from wildly fluctuating temperatures to heavy rain and violent thunderstorms. And yet there were also many good things: being able to welcome back at least some of the Tollwood market participants and caterers, many happy artists who were able to play in front of an audience again for the first time in a long time. And happy visitors who felt reminded of the beginnings of Tollwood or who were happy about, as the SZ wrote, “wonderfully relaxed togetherness” and “a wonderful, nostalgic atmosphere that not even the rain could destroy”.

Even though everything was a little different this summer, Tollwood, true to its festival philosophy, offered visitors an extensive free cultural programme. The musical heart of the festival beat this summer on the stage of the Hacker-Pschorr-Brett, with up to two live acts daily and artists such as Roger Rekless, Johnny Rakete and Schwarz. Then there were the unamplified pop-up concerts at the S-Beach. So the audience could choose between two and four live music acts every day. In addition, there were up to eight performances and walk acts per day. There was also a daily programme for children. In the “Garden of Flying Clouds”, yogis big and small got their money’s worth, and at the Tollwood Piazza, visitors could take part in “The Citizen is present”, a silent art action on three days. A total of over 700 events took place with free admission.
