The Festival Centre is the heart of the festival! This is where visitors can relax between performances, get into conversation and exchange ideas about the festival and the productions with the artists, the festival team or other festival visitors over a drink.
Immerse yourself with us for a week in another world full of colourful and crazy performances! Let yourself be inspired by artists from all over the world and make new contacts with like-minded people. Eat and drink, celebrate with us, visit our social program and become a part of our ARENA family for a few days...
The festival center is located in the Altstadtmarktpassage – Hauptstraße 55 – in the middle of Erlangen's old town.
You are very welcome!
In the festival centre, two artists will present their works in an exhibition curated especially for the ARENA Festival. Belén Nicole Otto Ruiz and Hannes Hochmuth aka Dachs are both originally from Erlangen and are currently studying at universities in Dresden and Berlin. The exhibition is open during the festival from 10 am to 5 pm.
