Barmbek's factory-turned-art space, Kampnagel, never ceases to amaze. It's a big part of Hamburg’s cultural landscape all year round, but the cultural centre really picks up the pace in summer when it hosts its international festival for modern performance art. For three weeks, visitors can see countless events and performances, ranging from music acts to drama and from dance to film. With its stylistic diversity and the multitude of concerts, plays and screenings, Kampnagel’s Summer Festival can be counted amongst the great performance art festivals on European soil. ​​​​​​​

Note on [k] Kampnagel International Summer Festival 2021

2021's [k] Kampnagel International Summer Festival was a slimmed down version to comply with regulations pertaining to the ongoing COVID-19 coronavirus public health situation. Kampnagel still put on an amazing festival worth visiting, whether safely in person or digitally. Their English website even included features allowing visitors interested in tickets to filter by location, including searching exclusively for digital events.
