Alpenrausch – The Festival for New Folk Music
Literature & Knowledge – Course
Music – Folk Music

Music – Classical Music
For a whole two days, musicians from a range of genres will cast an Alpine spell over Gasteig HP8 as they blend elements of traditional folk music with jazz, pop and classical music. The result? A new kind of folk music covering everything from archaic through to experimental.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to try out a variety of alpine activities in workshops, films and on climbing walls – all right in the heart of Munich. And there’s plenty for children to do as well, including Dr. Döblingers child-appropriate Kasperltheater with its puppets, a range of children’s activities or the chance to try out bouldering. All without costing a penny as admission is free!
Faltenradio – Best of
Members of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna Philharmonic play an ingenious mix of jazz, classical and traditional music – complete with diatonic accordion, clarinet, guitar and vocals.
Mattias Schriefl & Johannes Bär – »Auf Tour Z'Fuaß« (On Tour by Foot)
The two exceptional talents and multi-instrumentalists take the audience on a musical barefoot walk through the grounds of the Gasteig HP8. Showing their film »Auf Tour Z'Fuaß«, they also transform classical Handel into rock’n’roll and add a good dose of groove to Alpine yodellers.
Jütz & Timon Christen – »Piz Regolith« live – live concert performance and screening
The award-winning experimental dialect film »Piz Regolith« by Yannick Mosimann, shown as a live concert performance. A postmodern Swiss-Tyrolean ensemble ventures into remote mountainous regions, embracing the sonorous variety of local vernaculars. The Tyrolean Trio Jütz – that’s Isa Kurz, Daniel Woodtli and Philipp Moll – create the »sound of the mountains with internationality« (Salzburger Nachrichten). Together with VJ Timon Christen, they improvise live to footage from the film.
Bold and with no frills, this multi-award-winning Munich urban band never fail to whip up a party mood. Reggae, a capella, Balkan or techno? No matter, so long as it grooves.
Unterbiberger Hofmusik – Dahoam und Retour (At Home and Back Again)
The Himpsl family’ well-established folk ensemble – consisting of the parents and their three sons – has been crossing musical boundaries since 1992.
Trio Gabriel Nietlispach Pupato
Andreas Gabriel (violin) and Jürg Nietlispach (cittern) have been devotees of both original and contemporary folk music for some time now. For the first time, they are performing with one of Switzerland’s most exciting percussionists, Andi Pupato.
Duo Härtel/Trübsbach – Great again
Marie-Theres Härtel and Florian Trübsbach began composing the first pieces for their album in the seclusion of a mountain hut. With instruments galore, the two musicians meander through traditional folk, jazz, pop and chamber music.
Manu Delago Ensemble – »Parasol Peak« / film & concert
The Austrian percussionist Manu Delago lets his audiences participate in his alpine sound excursion: With a seven-piece instrumental ensemble, he embarked on a mountain expedition through the Tyrolean Alps.
Grapha – bös’ lecker (wickedly delicious)
Jazz meets Tyrolean humour, nostalgic swing meets contemporary driving beats, and every now and then a little waltz comes through. The »miniature big band« Grapha unites a wide range of styles with an irrepressible joy of music.
Schrägers und Gräders us äm Muotatal – traditional yodelling
Members of the yodelling group Natur pur and the formation Echo vom Schattenhalb take you on a musical journey through time in their homeland. Led by musician Bernhard Betschart, the group combines lively dances played on a »Schwyzerörgeli« – a Swiss diatonic button accordion – with hearty »Jüüzli« yodelling and wistful Chuäreihäli – the archetypal yodelling style of the Swiss Muota valley.
Munich Opera Horns: classical, Bavarian with swing – just wonderful!
Four solo hornists of the Bavarian State Opera show off their skills and spirit of adventure, including on their alphorns.
Bandaloop – vertical dance on the façades of Gasteig HP8
Combining climbing with dance, this US-American dance company uses skyscrapers, bridges and cliffs for their impressive performances. Pioneers of vertical dance, they are hard to miss at the Alpenrausch Festival, with choreographies taking place at dizzying heights both indoors and outdoors on the façades of Gasteig HP8.
