Digital Events from the Gasteig: Concerts, Comic Bar, Dance and More Whether it’s dance or concerts you enjoy, just a click will take you into the Gasteig Philharmonic Hall

We long for the day on which live performances with a real-life audience will finally be possible again in the Gasteig. In the meantime, the art centre’s stages are not entirely dark and silent: It pays to take the occasional look at the Gasteig’s online events calendar.

Behind the scenes, everyone at the Gasteig is working hard to provide culture buffs with digital events during the lockdown. To find out about these, click here. Some of our events are available on our Vimeo channel for you to watch any time.
