Festival Organizer

The Kessel Festival is the Festival for everyone at the heart of Stuttgart. Away from Stuttgart's high culture, the organizers and partners of the Kessel Festival once again create a 150,000 m2 action platform for the city of Stuttgart and the region. The fusion of music, sports, culture and sustainability creates a special setting for visitors of all ages at the Cannstatter Wasen. International top stars of the music scene on the main stage, young musicians on the young talent stage, sports and fun sports areas to watch and participate in as well as an interactive children & family program, the 'the day after tomorrow market' on the topic of sustainability and a contemporary culinary supply make the Kessel Festival the absolute summer highlight in Stuttgart for young and old. The Kessel Festival is the innovative, annually recurring, central meeting place with a connection to the region. In June 2022, the Kessel Festival celebrated its second edition with 50,000 visitors.
