The “Leipziger Hörspielsommer” is the biggest festival for audio drama in Germany. Every year, thousands of people gather at the Richard-Wagner-Hain, one of the beautiful parks in Leipzig, located directly next to the river to listen to different audio dramas. This year, it will take place from July 7 to July 16.

This year, the “Hörspielsommer e.V.” chose about 80 productions which you can listen to for free during the ten festival days. The festival programme is tailored to the different visitors: In the afternoon, there is a colourful programme for children and teenagers while the evening offers productions for adults. Every day has a different motto and something special to offer. There will not only be recorded audio dramas, but also live performances and two competitions for audio drama productions.

Here you can find the full festival programme.
