08. – 11. August 2019


On four days, musicians, artists, creative souls, utopians and activists gather in the former lignite mines at „Bergheider See" to exchange ideas about the essential topics of today and tomorrow, to learn from each other and to celebrate together. The Artlake Festival sees itself as an interdisciplinary platform which promotes creative and conscious participation as well as artistic positions and suggestions for social discourse far away from well-known institutionalized structures. Everyone can join, create, think, discuss and dance. The festival stands for a progressive pop and club culture that takes a stand. It reflects and promotes a diverse society at the interface of music, art and social policy – a space to experiment with new talents, thoughts and approaches.

This years Artlake Festival is dedicated to “FREE THE FUTURE” true to its motto „In a better future, borders will be obsolete“
