Information about the festival
From the very young to the nearly grown-up, Der Gasteig brummt! takes visitors on a musical voyage of discovery, providing a chance to listen, try out, dance, sing and play along. As every year, the institutions at home in the Gasteig as well as many of the art centre’s other partners offer a varied hands-on programme for children and youngsters. Over two days, concerts, instrument demonstrations and workshops will fill the Gasteig’s spaces with life.
Experience the Gasteig HP8
For almost 20 years now, the children’s hands-on music festival has been attracting thousands of music enthusiasts young and old to the Gasteig. Now extended to two days, the event allows children, youngsters, families and Munich school classes to “invade” the Gasteig HP8 in Sendling and find out all about the music activities taking place there through a wide range of workshops, concerts and participative sessions. Not only the location is new this year: there will also be plenty of new protagonists joining the already familiar ones.
When the percussionists of the Munich Philharmonic get going in the Isarphilharmonie, there’s no need to sit still and listen: After all, rhythm and melody are made to get you moving and dancing. Groups of children rush from hall to hall and through the foyers, and there is an air of excitement wherever you look.
Der Gasteig brummt! 2023
Der Gasteig brummt! has taken place 19 times to date. This year’s edition was the first to be held at the Gasteig HP8. On 3 March – unperturbed by the public transport strike – plenty of school classes and kindergarten groups invaded our arts centre in Sendling. And on 4 March, hundreds of families turned up at the Gasteig HP8 to participate in the many workshops, concerts and exciting hands-on activities for only € 2.00 per person. The children’s programme included painting activities and trying out instruments.
The Der Gasteig brummt! festival has a wide range of music and activities on offer and will provide plenty of enjoyment for newcomers to the world of music as well as seasoned music fans looking for new inspiration. Bringing kids in contact with music at an early age is what motivates the makers and musicians involved as well as many teachers.
