Festival period 2020/2021

Beethovenfest Bonn is pleased to inform you that – despite restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic – two projects will take place in the 2020 anniversary year as planned. The special concert »Missa im Dom« will take place in the Cologne Cathedral on August 21, 2020. This will be closed to the public but broadcast online via livestream. The »BAUPROBE BEETHOVEN« project by the Berlin artists’ collective Rimini Protokoll – a theatrical inspection of the Beethovenhalle construction site – will also take place as planned in strict accordance with COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines.

We deeply regret that Beethovenfest Bonn 2020 – due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic – will not take place as planned from September 4 – 27, 2020. Fortunately, we have been able to postpone the festival almost in its entirety, and it will now take place – under the artistic direction of Nike Wagner – from August 20 to September 10, 2021. Here you can find all concerts that could be postponed to 2021.

Unfortunately, several concerts scheduled for 2020 could not be postponed since the given tours/programs/productions could not be rescheduled for 2021. These concerts are listed on the back of the flyer as ‘Cancelled‘. Ticket holders for these concerts can also return their tickets for a refund You can find a list of all concerts that are cancelled here.
