´The Long Night of Music´

Munich’s city centre will once again become a major concert stage for one night this spring. In this article you will find out the most important things about this music spectacle in Munich.

On May 9 between 8 pm and 3 am emerging solo artists and bands will present themselves to an enthusiastic audience. Quite different from a normal concert, the visitors move from venue to venue during the <link http: www.muenchner.de musiknacht _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>´Long Night of Music´. Look forward to a major cultural event with 100 venues and a variety of music which is unrivalled. The price for the combination ticket is more than fair: you can attend any concert for only 15 euro.  

The artists and venues

Which music can you expect? Whether classical, jazz, hip-hop or alternative rock, there is hardly a genre that is not served. Styles will be primarily represented by talented young artists who can be admired at about <link http: www.muenchner.de musiknacht spielstaetten alphabetisch _blank external-link-new-window external link in new>100 venues.

Churches, cultural homes, bars, pubs or clubs – there is no predetermined route. You can assemble your individual plan or simply drift through the musical night. By using an extra combination ticket, you can take the special MVG shuttle busses and comfortably get from concert to concert.
