NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

The cultural program is growing

More artists  for the NORDEN Festival 2023 are fixed. Already for the fifth time we celebrate this year the northern European culture on the Königswiesen in Schleswig - the anticipation is rising. We can't wait to celebrate with you again soon on the Königswiesen - it's going to be fun! 2023 will be especially colorful, international and diverse.
Until then, we will continue to work diligently on the cultural program and maybe we even have a few surprises in store for the anniversary edition of our favorite festival? Stay tuned, the next cultural wave will follow in just a few weeks.

On the music stages, the first weekend of the festival (August 24 - 27, 2023) begins with multi-instrumentalist RYAN EDMOND. He has already traveled the world and the years of wandering have undoubtedly influenced his music. This can be clearly heard in his single Stockholm, an ode to his new home in Sweden. Visiting from the Netherlands are the musicians of FOLK ROAD SHOW - not a conventional band, but rather a traveling folk variety. They manage to make a living room feel like a theater and a theater feel like a living room.

The second festival weekend holds great newcomer:inside from Northern Germany. SOBI tells stories of encounters and relationships, beautiful and sad experiences, dark moments and positive turns in her songs. Hope can be the key to heal sadness and this is what the singer, guitarist and composer expresses in her songs. Always looking for the perfect groove, the tightest bass line or the most beautiful melody, the four guys of BUBE have only one goal: Finally make good music in German and bring it to the lady. Even the very small singers get on the big stage at the NORDEN Festival. TINY WOLVES - 60 voices of children aged 8 to 12, a guitar and a bunch of good songs. The idea: unforgettable songs, true lyrics, performed in the dynamic that friends develop when they come together at the right moment in the right place. A final highlight on the second weekend of the festival is the performance of Latvian ethno-pop band TAUTUMEITAS. They take melodies and lyrics from Latvian folk songs, create powerful harmonies and fuse them with modern beats and production to spread magic everywhere.

The festival literature section also looks promising. On the first festival weekend, multi-award-winning author SVEN STRICKER will read his crime novel Sörensen sieht Land (Sörensen Sees Land), which will be published in a few days - the fourth part of the successful Sörensen ermittelt series.
On the second festival weekend, the illustrator HANNA HARMS shows in her graphic novel Milk without Honey in poetic pictures the many aspects of the situation up to the extinction of the insects. A future without bees? A gray dystopia that we absolutely must counteract! KATJA JOSTEIT presents with her book in a humorous way the subtleties of Danish etiquette and yet her protagonist:inside find out in the end: True hygge exists independently of candlelight and open fires - in the heart. The second weekend of the festival continues on an adventurous note. TIMM KRUSE tells of a very special journey - barefoot across the Nile, by SUP.

In the field of street theater it will be very crazy again on the first festival weekend. STENZEL & KIVITS take the world of opera for a ride and create amazement with extraordinary musical instruments. The falling piano, a dancing music stand and the actually impossible duet with Caruso are part of it. Also on the first weekend of the festival, the artists of OAKLEAF delight the audience with impressive costumes on high stilts.
