Postponement Beethovenfest 2020
It is with great regret that we announce that the Beethovenfest Bonn 2020 cannot take place as planned this year due to the still unclear conditions of the Corona Pandemic.
The March Week of the Beethovenfest from March 13 to 22, 2020, has already been cancelled at short notice on official instruction as one of the first festivals to be cancelled during the containment of the Corona Pandemic. The concerts had to be cancelled without substitution. You can find more information about returning tickets below.
However, the festival planned from September 4 to 27, 2020, under the artistic direction of Nike Wagner, can be postponed for one year with few exceptions and will take place from August 20 to September 10, 2021. The following modalities apply to the nearly 60 events planned for the anniversary year 2020:
1. for concerts taking place in 2020
The concert »Missa solemnis« in Cologne Cathedral will take place WITHOUT an audience on August 21, 2020 and will be broadcast on the Internet. The free tickets lose their validity.
The four performances of the theatrical site inspection in the Beethovenhalle Bonn »BAUPROBE BEETHOVEN« on September 12 and 13, 2020 (11 a.m. and 3 p.m. respectively) will take place as planned and are still available in advance.
2. for concerts that are postponed to 2021
A large part of the concerts of the Beethovenfest Bonn 2020 will be postponed to the year 2021. Tickets already purchased for these events remain valid and do not need to be exchanged. You can find the new dates here. If you are not able to keep the replacement date, you can make use of your right of return. (For these concerts, sales have been stopped since May 5, 2020. Tickets for the alternate dates and possibly additional concerts of the Beethovenfest Bonn 2021 will be available in advance from the beginning of December)
3. for concerts that are cancelled without substitution
Unfortunately, some concerts cannot be postponed because the tours/programs/productions in 2021 cannot be made up for. The affected concerts are marked on the back with the note »Cancelled«. Here, too, every ticket buyer can make use of the right of return.
4. for the festival pass "Beethovenfest 2020" and the "Kombiticket Kollektiv L" (combined ticket collective L)
The FESTIVAL PASS offered for the first time for the Beethovenfest 2020 at a price of € 89, which entitles the Pass holder to purchase tickets at a reduced price, remains valid for the Beethovenfest Bonn 2021 and does not need to be exchanged. The Festival Pass is valid for one person for events from August 20 - September 10, 2021 (as well as for the event »BAUPROBE BEETHOVEN« on September 12 and 13, 2020).
The combined ticket for the two concerts of the series "Kollektiv L" in the Fabrik45 also remains valid for the replacement dates on 27 and 28 August 2021 and does not need to be exchanged.

Early September 2020
Beginning of advance ticket sales for the Beethovenfest Bonn 2021:
